"It's speculation now that they will be out for the first game," Vitt said. "We certainly think Curtis will be ready for the first game. The diagnosis for David has been encouraging. He hurt it early in the (Jaguars) game, and he played on it. He's got a chance to be back for that game."

High ankle sprain can be a terrible injury. Luckily modern sports medicine practitioners have ways of helping them heal without the long, long, long healing times.

Re: Saints LB Curtis Lofton sprains ankle

When I read up on the healing time it said from 3 days to 6 months... I wanted to thank the author for his insight.

surgery to fix torn meniscus is not really a big deal... He'll be ready to play week 1 or 2 at the latest...

Hamina!! Hamina!! Hamina!!

Vitt suggested that the new turf at the Superdome might have played a role in mowing down his linebackers. The coach said he regretted not having a practice on that field before the game against the Jags.
