    Donnie Avery Update

    Per Rotoworld:


    Rams WR Donnie Avery (injured reserve, torn right ACL) revealed that he is already running 12 weeks removed from reconstructive knee surgery.
    He is also able to play basketball. Avery doesn't have a history of serious injuries and will have had nearly a full year of recovery time before the start of 2011 training camp. While the Rams can't rely on him as a starter next season, he should be able to add needed speed to the receiver corps.
    Per Donnie's Twitter page:

    It's only been 12 weeks from acl surgery and I'm already running!!! Dedication, hard work and the man upstairs!

    Good to see he's been rehabbing with dedication, can't wait to see him and that nice vertical speed when Bradford's throwing to him next season.

    Re: Donnie Avery Update

    If he's already running, I'd like to see him get together w/ Bradford and get reacquainted this offseason. He looked good in the preseason, but I doubt he has the timing down that the others have gotten with Bradford over the season. Plus, he'll be fighting for playing time next season. Just a thought.

    Nice to hear the rehab is going so well. I tore my ACL back in high school and it took about nine months before I was able to run again without pain. Then again, I'm no where near the caliber athlete Donnie is

    He is also able to play basketball.
    Ex-squeeze me? Baking powder?

    Why in the name of crap's kitchen is Avery playing basketball?

    Its not like Donnie is playing basketball in some European Pro League, and I doubt he plays five on five in a physical, full on basketball game. He's probably just shooting around and getting his knee used to moving and cutting again. Let's not make something out of nothing.

    Basketball's an excellent workout guys. Extremely happy to here that his rehab is going excellent. 12 weeks removed and he's running already????Great News.

    Just looked on Avery's twitter and he just went to go shoot hopes at the 24 hour fitness thats about 5 miles from my house lol.

    I don't care if it's just the trash can basket toss app on his IPhone.....people get hurt playing pickup basketball, and I'd prefer he not aggravate his injury. He needs to stick to his rehab, and don't try to tell me basketball is part of his rehab.

    Re: Donnie Avery Update

    I'll admit I facepalmed when I read he was playing basketball.

    I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume it is very rehab oriented and will not expose him to further set backs.

    While the Rams can't rely on him as a starter next season, he should be able to add needed speed to the receiver corps.
    Can someone explain this to me. He'll be recovered and cleared to play, but he can't be relied on as a starter? Am I missing something?

    I agree, this is stupid to me,he blew out his knee playing football,his profession,should he be taking a chance with another sport, it could be something as simple as slipping on a wet spot on the floor.

    Re: Donnie Avery Update

    well when you go down the stairs to fix breakfast every morning your taking a risk...let alone the mandatory running and weight lifting he has to do for his rehab...

    Intense rehab, ahead of schedule....he can't go shoot a few jumpers?
