In response to NEGAME2's comment:
#2 why do you think he would have a hundred million lawsuit coming? because Andrews THINKS he should not play--talk about a no opinion
#3 so you think its ok for him to be partying, drinking as much alcohol as he can, picking men up and throwing them around (and thats probably when his back got reinjured) You think that helps the healing process?
#2: If he wants to sit out because his doctor told him to, is forced to play by the coach (using a play or we'll cut you tactic maybe?) and then suffers a career ending injury, you can bet you life there would be a huge lawsuit coming the Patriot's way.
#3: I haven't spend much time studying the healing process of a broken arm that has been broken before and the related effects of alcohol thereof. I also don't know if he's been drinking as much alcohol as he can or if horseplay with friends has contributed to his injuries. Come to think of it, neither do you.
People seem to think that goofing off with friends is as risky as having linebackers and dbacks targeting your recently recovered injuries. I think otherwise.
Alcohol weakens bones and interferes with fracture healing
Also important is advice on abstaining from alcohol when broken bones are healing, because drinking has a detrimental effect on the healing process. "To heal properly, bone cells must first form a 'matrix,' which later hardens or ossifies," explains fellow researcher at the Omaha VA Medical Center, Dr Terrence Donohue (also professor of internal medicine at University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha). "Alcohol consumption changes the composition of this matrix by suppressing the formation of osteoblasts and/or decreasing their ability to respond to signals that normally trigger bone formation after a fracture."
I can probably find fifty more articles that would back this up , but I'm not going to bother.
