@desmondadonis..with JT you never know..this guy played through active cracked ribs (this is one of the most painful situations one can play through) and after arthroscopic knee surgery some time back he was back in competitive play in 2 wks..the typical lay of for that sort of surgery is at best 4weeks and more typically in the 6-8 wk range..the guy has clearly taken very good care of his body but beyond that he has such a high threshold for pain...this is one reason the moniker capt fantastic is apt.
