Injured McNabb Named NFC Player of the Month

Sep 29, 2005, 1:38 PM EDT

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.
