“He’s got a crack in his lower leg that they fixed and operated on. It went clean as a whistle, really good. It was as good as it could humanly be as far as the prognosis of things,” Fisher said, via Yahoo Sports.

“Timeline, I’m not a doctor and I’m not going to say. When you heal, you heal. When you’re healed, you’re healed. We would never play him before that.”
