Yep. Kobe Bryant, too. His knees were in really bad shape, but he went to Germany (I think) and had some voodoo platelet treatment that made everything get better.

Another one: Bartolo Colon was cooked in MLB, but went to some magical Caribbean doctor and was throwing 98 mph again.

I'm sorry, but there's no way these seemingly Teflon guys in their late 30s and beyond aren't using something.
Let them. Not anabolic steroids but a lot of the banned substances are just good therapy.

its not voodoo - its PRP ( platelet rich plasma ) therapy- bombarding the injury with additional platelets ( adding to what your body normally produces during healing process )
The platelets come from your own body- just concentrated for healing

That’s a good one. Send him to Europe with LeBron and Tom Brady for "Therapy"
Brady looked worse than Brees 2 years ago and then a quarter of the way through last season, he was suddenly throwing lasers 50 yards in the air.

Oh, I know. I was mostly speaking in a tongue-in-cheek fashion. Still... it's odd that more run-of-the-mill athletes don't benefit from these treatments. It has always smelled like a front for HGH or something else.

Tom Brady would never cheat as*****! He's a Saint! :sneaky::LOL:

Davenport is a little tricky... Because a PEC tear is a season ender if that strain isn't fully healed. So, we are probably gonna shut him down till he's 110% healthy.
I was thinking his would be hard to back soon from considering all the hand fighting and pushing he has to do in the trenches. All those movements would involve his pec muscles.

Oh just imagine if Marcus Davenport had Cam Jordan’s durability.
I'm starting to theorize that Davenport's injury issues are in part due to his elite athleticism. And I'm now thinking of all the DEs who had long healthy careers. How many were freak athletes?
