Who would you designate to return?

The Saints will have the option later in the season to bring someone back into the fold from the IR list but ONLY if they designate them as such and it can only be one.


Assume Morgan does have another meniscus tear.

Do you use the option on Morgan or Butler?

Too early to make a decision. It will come to a 3:50 decision on 9/4.

I think a meniscus is only about a 4 to 6 week injury isn't it? Morgan would only miss a couple of games. I doubt we'd IR him.

Correct. IF it's a meniscus tear, depending on what they have to do to it (surgery and whatnot), he'll miss 3-6 weeks. He probably won't even get PUP-listed to start the season (unless they take an overly cautious approach, which is likely).

If even that long. You can return back from a mild tear in 2-4 weeks. It all depends upon how quickly you can overcome the pain from the surgery.

So the 2nd opinion is probably just to decide between rest or surgery?

With Brees you can pretty much plug and play any decent receiver. I think the Butler injury hurts more because we need all the talent we can get at that position. I vote Butler.

You can't "rest" a meniscus tear. It will never heal on it's own. It doesn't regenerate like other tissues. When I had my tear the surgeon told me I could just live with the pain or have it repaired. He said it wouldn't get any worse without surgery, but it also wouldn't get any better. What they do when "repairing" the meniscus is actually removing the flap that has torn away from the main section. The pain comes from that flap being pinched by the joint. I had the surgery and walked out that day. It didn't require any crutches or cane.

My guess is that the second opinion is to help decide whether to do the surgery or just tolerate the pain.

Re: Who would you designate to return?

I wouldn't have posted this if it were not a possibility. If you guys are reading up on recovery time this is for an NFL player to return to the field. If this was just a small partial tear i doubt there would be a need for a second opinion, second opinions are for when the first opinion wasn't favorable.


In case some have forgotten, this is not his first go round with a torn meniscus and he ended up on IR the last time it happened in week 2 of the preseason.

Note this comment in one of your links. This jives perfectly with my experience.

Im confused about the answers to this question because I just had a torn meniscus tear repaired and arthritis taken out as well. I went into a surgery center in the morning and out that afternoon. I had no crutches I was in pain but walked out. I also had my first of 2 thearpy sessions the very next day. I have been walking on it though it is stiff and doing the exercises they told me to do. The doctor gave me a release to return to work a week later. I return to work Saturday. My husband had it done about 8 yrs ago and he did better then I have. He had no pain and back to work the next week and no problems since. I think if your going to have any surgery done do your homework and find the right doctor for you,not just one your doctor refers you to.
