RB Toby Gerhart Doesn’t Need Surgery

Multiple sources have reported that Toby Gerhart does not need surgery on his sprained MCL after he sprained it in the last game of the year against Chicago. They have determined that his knee will heal with rest and some rehab.

Gerhart will more than likely be seeing an increased workload starting week 1 of the 2012 season if Adrian Peterson isn’t fully recovered from knee surgery. Gerhart filled in nicely for Peterson in 2011 when Peterson was dealing with a high ankle sprain than eventually tore his ACL, ending his season.

    Well hopefully the situation doesn’t turn out the same way it did when Sidney Rice was advised not to have surgery and then only later to find out that it would be in his best interest in order t prolong his career. I say if there is any question in Toby mind get a 2nd opinion and get it taken care of in the off season, so that he will be ready at the start of the season.

    It might be wise to pick up a free agent rb as insurance.
    It will take a full year (12month) before Peterson is 100%.
    He might be able to play at the start of the season,but he will need a few more months before he returns to form.
