    ***David Cornwell injury update

    Got another update from what I posted in another thread....


    He DID have surgery. Don't know on what, but will miss the remainder of his season, but will be ready for spring practice at Bama.

    I was afraid he was going to have to get cut on. Get well fast and work hard on your rehab.

    Re: ***David Cornwell injury update

    As RTO stated above, Cornwell has gone public with the fact that did have surgery, but has not been willing to discuss the extent of his injury.

    From al.com:

    Cornwell told AL.com he still expects to enroll at Alabama for the spring semester and should be recovered from surgery in time to compete for Alabama's starting quarterback job in the spring.


    "I will be ready and practicing in spring ball as well," Cornwell said.
    Doesn't look like we will get any independent confirmation on the exact nature of the injury just yet, but I see no reason to believe it's anything other than a torn ACL. FWIW, that's what I've heard from everyone I've talked to on the subject.

    I'm glad he's getting the surgery now & will be ready for Spring ball when he comes to Bama..At least it wasn't an injury to his throwing arm from what I've gathered from what I've read about his injury....

    Just glad the speculation of being hurt is over. Let the speculation of how hurt begin!

    Re: ***David Cornwell injury update

    Even with advances in surgery and rehab, is it realistic to have an ACL repaired in mid-October, and fully participate in spring drills in March?

    I love the attitude, and hope he accomplishes the goal. I just think we should curb our expectations, all the while pulling for a record-setting rehab.

    Fully? No, certainly not if he indeed tore his ACL, but at around five months post-op he could certainly participate in some activities, with an eye towards full clearance in mid-to-late summer. I think the target here will be to turn him loose sometime next July.

    Depending on when spring practice falls and when he actually had the surgery (perhaps a week ago) it could almost be 6 months.

    He'll be wearing a black jersey anyway so I'd expect he could participate at a pretty high level (with no contact).

    Edit: Not disputing what BET said, but that he should be able to be active in spring practice to some extent.

    Excellent point.

    Re: ***David Cornwell injury update

    There is no evidence that it is a torn knee ligament. It could be just a torn meniscus or cartilage which has a much shorter recovery time. All this speculation is above my pay grade so I'll just be content in letting those that be handle it.
