"My understanding is that if he does need it, it only pushes him back a couple of weeks in terms of his return time," Caldwell said, via The Florida Times-Union. "He was going to be 50-50 for the opener. We would hope if everything went well it should be four weeks from the surgery where he'd be back to full strength."
"He had a follow-up appointment today and just had some discomfort in there and they re-did some tests and it showed some loosening of the ligament," Caldwell added. "He could probably play with it, but if we let it go and it's still loose, then we're at Week 4 or 5 in the season and he needs surgery. It would be us being aggressive. ... Our most realistic case is he has surgery and he's back for Indy."
