Um, wow. Where did this come from??? Why so secretive? I mean, I can see waiting til after the draft, but its been 5 weeks. Wow. What to make of this. Hope he just feels better and can take some snaps most games. We STILL don't run him into the ground, and we wait to get him into the flow starting like October. Hope this is all true and things work out for 600 snaps, and available for the playoffs. This is a stunner.

Sadly the condition is a chronic one, but clean outs like this are extremely helpful and gives one a much better and more comfortable movement of the tendon. But the condition is chronic and will recur over time, but can be cleaned out again. I've had a couple of these and they were very successful. Length of time depends on what the area is subjected to...in this case everything that goes along with NFL football.

IOW, this area is going to be subjected to trauma all over again, with more of the same recurring. So it's a W. It would be nice if this gets Dee thru the season. Having him in on passing downs? We win the last SB.

Any idea how it could go from tendonosis where the collagen is deteriorating, to back to tendonitis, albeit extreme?

I'll leave the medical part to Doc, but I had experience with this general issue in the achilles leading up to my last race a number of years ago (a USATF national indoor championship 400m)

I have "chronic tendinitis" and some would probably call it a severe case. During training, the inflamation from tendon scar tissue moving in the tendon sheath became a huge problem as my body would protect the achilles and not want to engage it in a full range of motion. This caused subtle imbalances which lead to other issues. I stopped training and resigned myself to needing surgery and missing the competition. By pure chance (and stupidity) it was discovered that the irritation was triggered in a part of the running motion associated with slow, lazy jogging. As long as I avoided that, the achilles wasn't really a problem. I did surprisingly well in the competition considering the ruined training program, but had to scrap the rest of the year because of the issues caused by the imbalance during training.

Not sure if any of my experience translates to Ford's, but I can say that while my issue is chronic, there is functionally a night and day difference between when my achilles is happy, and when I get lazy and it gets inflamed and angry.

Edit: The initial irritation was caused by slow, lazy jogging, but once triggered, the inflamation started and everything went downhill.

You're really surprised? This didn't come out of nowhere. Definitely not a stunner. I'm actually not sure if you're being sarcastic?

Fred Dean had a severe knee injury in 1982, and played another three years after that. Dee Ford is 28 - conceivably if he follows Fred Dean's trajectory - he can play another - - five years? Sports science is much more advanced now vs 1982, and NFL sport science is usually at the cutting edge of the cutting edge. I.e. - It's at the level of Special Forces type of medical cutting edge knowledge.

Great stuff Doc, and Midbay. As a fan, I'm a bit more hopefull of Dee Fords condition now. This morning I was ready to trade him for a cheezeburger. Man o man, do our members have some serious knowledge - as compared to most of the beat writers out there (example Mr. Cone).

Dr. chao saying it's should put his knee tendonitis in the past is what I needed to hear this is amazing news if it ends up true.

Giving Ford a solid 600+ snaps next yr could take this defenses to a different level.

I had arthroscopic debridement surgery on my right knee the week before the superbowl. I could put weight on it within a few days and was off crutches within a week. Dee should definitely be ready for next season, but I also agree with those saying it's really more of a temporary fix.

One idea I have is if any of his understudies show some production and talent. (Kongbo,Hyder, Barrett) that would help spot Dee Ford from being used too much during the regular season, and save his reps for the playoffs. I think the odds are - even without Dee Ford - this team still has a decent shot at getting into the playoffs. It's getting to the super bowl - and winning - is where we need Dee Ford at his best.

Thanks Giedi. Doc is the one who actually knows stuff. I just burn myself on the stove from time to time

Please post all the articles referencing dee fords post super bowl surgery !!! Har har. Lynch explicitly said he wasnt going under the knife. Obviously some big time obfuscation going on for whatever reason. i think you are the one who is being sarcastic.
