It's a pretty rough injury.

Would be surprised if he's 100% or close to it in two weeks. I expect him to play, but I don't think he'll be right until the SB if we make it.

I had a similar type of injury when I was in high school. Now granted, that was over 40 years ago, and I wasn’t a pro athlete with unlimited, top of the line medical and physical resources available to me. I was on crutches for 2 and half weeks, and it was another 2-3 weeks before I could run even reasonably well. Now I can’t remember the exact diagnosis...calf strain, tear, contusion...whatever. I just remember it hurting like all hell...

A strong possibility we’ll be without him, or with him very limited for the divisional round, but still too early to tell for sure. If anyone can recover in time it’s AB, but the last thing any of us would want is to see him compromised to the point that he re-aggravates the injury in the divisional round and is out the following week (assuming a Steelers victory). My feeling is both Brown and Bell will be needed to get by NE.

What is that, a treadmill inside a hyperbaric chamber?!?

Can't really tell if he still has a limp/hitch, but it kind of looks like it to me. Jogging in a week, probably 80-90% for divisional game.

Was my guess to Kodiak. Hyperbaric treadmill.

It's an alter G or "anti-gravity" treadmill

It lets you lower the amount of weight you are running with (through the skirt like thing around AB's waist)

Ok makes perfect sense then. Not wanting to over work the injured calf with full weight/impact. Step in the right direction though... ;)

So walking with less than full weight? I'd say that is not nearly as far along at this point as I would have hoped.
