If it truly was the Lisfranc (still haven't seen anything concrete saying it was) I know the first first approach is always attempting to let it heal on its own. They probably had the window worked out to where if surgery was required it could still be done in time to return by the season's start.

Actually Asylum, Coach Payton and Unger have confirmed again recently to the media that it was a Lisfranc fracture; and I'd agree with the approach of rest for most humans.

However, Unger is not a normal human being; he's a professional athlete who will push his body, even during the offseason, to the limit...

His frame alone also carries a great deal of weight that most normal humans do not jave; for that reason alone, I'd reinforced the foot promptly so the everyday stress on that limb and it's joints would mend quickly, correctly...

Not just so he could continue his off-season regimen and playing, but so a lingering wound doesn't cause secondary issues in the ankle, knee, hip while compensating for the Lisfranc...

This is another questionable, wrong call by the Ochsner Sports Opinions that the Saints are currently aligned...

There is a thing called "best practices" in medicine. Surgery is never the first option if any other option is available. Doing it any other way would be, in your own words, "playing games". I know quite a bit about this. I hear about it every day. My wife is a long time malpractice claims adjuster representing half the hospitals and doctors in the state of Louisiana. Performing surgery without first eliminating other less invasive options would open up a can of malpractice worms. That is a fact.

The best practice is to fix it
