Can Coles Get it Back?

Will Coles be able to return to his old form without toe-surgery?

I think he can, what he really needs is rest. Don't step onto a football field until training camp.

Thing is, he doesn't strike me as the kind of person you can keep off a football field. He'll be itching to participate in all the mini-camps. It'll be up to Joe (Crisp, of course) to tell him it's not worth it

As long as he doesn't feel the foot, he'll be ok. I'm no doctor, so I have no idea as to what will make him 100% again.

Daseal posted that Coles was clocked at 4.16 coming out of Florida state. Does anyone know if his speed has suffered or is it just that he can't make his cuts as easily. They talk about how it is now unnatural for him to cut / accelerate.

I dont know, I heard he started taking Cortizone(sp) towards the end of the year, and from that Eagle game on, his play picked up a little bit. I really hope so, because he is a HUGE threat when 100%.

I can imagine that he'll benefit hugely from the extra time around Ramsey this off season.

i dont know much about those cortizone shots. I dotn think that it is jsut pain releif. my dogs hip got messed up, he was limping all the time. The vet said his spine got compressed from some landing or something. he could either get back surgury, or get a cortizone shot. A week after teh shot he was fine. Something about how it relaxes everythign so it can heal properly on its own or somethign like that.

i dont know if that applies or helps, but I thought id put my two cents in

how fast can your dog run the 40 now, that's the real question...and can he accelerate after he catches the frisbee

i got a cortizone shot once...had a pain in my shoulder that wouldn't go away...i got it playing golf (probably took too big a divot). For weeks i just hoped it would go away. finally went to the doctor and got the shot. a week later i was back to golfing without any problems (accept i still couldn't hit the damn ball straight). i agree with skinsncanes...i think the shot relaxed my shoulder so it could finally heal.

Does anyone know why Coles chose not to have surgery? It seems to me that in a long offseason, surgery would be the best solution to this nagging problem.

I don't know anything about Coles' specific injury, but I can tell you from experience that toe injuries and football do not mix. I played receiver in high school (way back in the day) and i somehow managed to sprain both my big toes. I don't know if it was the shoes I was wearing or what, but it was a HUGE hassle. It does seriously debilitate your ability to make cuts, but above all else it prevents you from pushing off that toe to get a good jump at the snap of the ball. If I were a defensive coordinator, and I knew the other team's #1 receiver had a toe problem, I would jam him at the line with my best corner all day long.

There's something about the surgery for his injury that could be career threatening. I guess some other previouse players with the same injury have had the surgery...some having positive results and some resulting in retirement. Too risky for Coles to have the surgery.

At least that's how I understand the situation

Seems to be a full recovery. Never clocked his 40, hes a siberian husky, so he runs the 1000 mile in great time though, lol. Mabye he could be a return specialist with that endurance. he would come cheaper than morton

career ender

I hope you guys are aware that if Coles does end up getting the surgery, it will pretty much end his playing days. That is the sole reason why he is refusing it.

He would not be the first elite athlete to ever have the surgery. Granted it is risky but by no means is it impossible to come back from.
