Donovan McNabb, who is extremely banged up, was named the NFC's Offensive player of the month. The severity of Donovan's injury seems to be in question. He has a "sports hernia" which is also known as a hernia which happens while playing sports. I think it is safe to say we all wish Donovan was 100% healthy but the reality is that he will play the rest of the season in pain, opting to hold off on surgery.
Here is what the professionals are saying today:
Les Bowen - my favorite article of the day - McNabb will Play Through the Pain
Bob Brookover - McNabb Says No to Surgery
Dana Pennett O'Neil - The Fragile Line Between Hero and Fool
Ashley McGeachy - Birds and passer are blowing the call - thinks Donovan should have surgery.
The more I read, the less confident I get. My faith in Donovan has never really swayed, but if he is going to be in pain every time he throws a pass for the rest of the season.. It's just not good for our Detroit fantasies.
