    Re: Kenny Bell playing in BCSCG is a game time decision

    I understand the dual speed threat of Cooper and a healthy Bell.

    But if Bell plays, I think the main question is whether he's close enough to 100% to force the defense to respect that speed. If so, his mere presence does pose a problem for the ND defense. If he's 80%? Maybe not so much.

    Where's the break even point -- 80%? 90%? More? Less? That's what Saban gets paid $5M a year to decide.

    I hope if is 95-100% he limps around in the pre-game warm-ups just to fool the Domers.

    I'd be very surprised to see him if it's less than 90%...

    How does a player know if he is 100%, 90%, or 75%? What's the definition? Are you 100% if there is no pain and no limitation on your movement? Or are still considered 100% if you can still go full speed with no limitation on mobility yet there is a slight pain to it or would that be considered 90%?

    Well, for starters, they're all hurting, practically every one. The question is how much the pain limits function. Nobody believes Bell won't be in pain. The question is whether or not the pain will limit him 5%, 10% in performance. It's really all about how much the pain affects performance. (I'm really just paraphrasing Coach Saban here.)

    My main concern would be if he can withstand a big hit on that leg again without hurting it further. Hope to see him play, and contribute, of course.

    So, if I understand right -- then he's not in danger of injuring the leg further -- it's more about pain management, right? Or could he reinjure the same break by playing on it?

    That would depend on the severity of the fracture. I'm no doctor (well I am but not that kind) but in my mind if they're even thinking about him playing it couldn't have been as severe an injury as I first thought. I'm not sure I've ever heard of a broken leg not meaning a season ending injury.
