i truly believe he's ready to play right away...
but the doctors, family, and friends are telling him to wait and not rush.
i guarentee the docs told him that he was "this" close to ending his career.
and its spooked him out bad.
so he's deciding to wait, re-evaluate his situation and not rush anything.
i think he narrowly escaped a career ending injury by an inch or two and that his back and neck are perfect, but mentally, he just isnt ready to come back...
and everyone around him is telling him to wait a few months.
