The thing is to make assumptions about a return date is futile at this point. Not only do we not know anything about the ACL yet, but everyone recovers at different rates from these types of injuries. I feel fairly certain that he'll get the very best treatment and post op rehab that's available. He's also very athletic and otherwise healthy and young. With his drive to succeed and play the game, I don't doubt for a minute he does everything he has to do to be ready to play next season.
