QUOTE(iancurtis @ Aug 9 2008, 03:32 PM) [snapback]186560[/snapback] Greg Ellis is the exception to the rule on Achilles injuries. Sometimes these are the trickiest injuries there are. Ruptures usually end careers because they normally just don't come back the same. Without a complete tear you have things like stress fractures, bone spurs, chronic tendinitis that won't go away. The brillance of the medical experts above is staggering and maybe you guys should contact the TCU Sports Medicine department (one of the best in the nation) and let them know that they should seek a second or third opinion. I'm sure they haven't thought about this at all. While you are at it, contact Mike Renfro and tell him the same thing because he probably has never dealt with football or injuries or anything like that while he was playing for the Cowboys. I'm sure too that he is in a financial bind and doesn't have any resources or connections to get his son checked out. OK, I hear that and you are right but the question remains. What was Clints injury? Was it a sprained achiles? Ruptures and tears are completely different but I don't think that he suffered that sever of injury. I could be wrong though.
