Zero, that surgery to repair a herniated disk was a vertebrae fusion. According to this, Richardson had a fusion at a different location.

Nick Collins C-3 and C-4
Sean Richardson C-5 and C-6

Whatever already! All I know is that between Jennings and McMillian there has been a whole lot of suck going on opposite Burnett. Let Richardton compete.


Unless there are some season ending injuries I doubt they will activate him right away. They will probably keep him the full 3 weeks from whenever they activate him just in case someone else gets hurt during that time.

Look at the diagram in the post above. Richardson's problem was farther down than Collins - apparently a good thing.

If I could applaud this 10,000 times, I would. This is very, very good news for the Packers. They will eventually be teaming old teammates Casey Hayward and Sean Richardson in the same secondary. I can't wait to see it!

It is amazing that 5 drs can agree on anything.

5 out of 5 drs agree that med school should of cost them less... and they should be paid more

On Sunday, Richardson said, team physician Patrick McKenzie told him he had been cleared.


That's awesome for him. But he would still need someone to get IRed or released from the 53 man roster for him to get on it.

ESPN said:
There was one other surprise at practice. Safety Jerron McMillian was not in attendance. The reason wasn’t immediately known.


Hmmm... I wonder...

I don't think these two stories relate to each other... but they do play the same position. So it's possible they might...

But I would of expected the Packers to use Richardson's 3 weeks of practicing getting him up to speed first before putting him on the 53 man roster. Buty ou never know.

If the C3 disk presses against the spine you can actually die as it's in the zone that controls the diaphragm.
A C3-C4 fussion means you are out of sports, or that no doctor will ever clear you.

C4-C5 is less risky, the player might have paralysis in his legs but there's no risk to die.

That's the main difference between Collins and Richardson injuries.

I still don't know if the Packers will allow Richardson to play even if cleared by docs. There's always a risk.

Very surprised they approved him.

Bernardo Harris played again after a neck fusion surgery, but that's the exception to the rule, especially with this team. He reinjured it too, iirc.

Anyway, let's see what the kid can do.


You do talk some absolute bollocks, don't you.

A quick google search on Bernardo Harris and fusion surgery only yields one relevant result: your post on this site.

Harris from 96 through 2001 was active 16 games each year. He was active 13 games in 2002. In 2003 he was put on injured reserve for a broken fibula and retired.

I don't think you recall correctly.

Also, I'd like to see you show any evidence to support your assertion that returning is the exception. I've looked and there doesn't seem to be a ton of data on the matter. One of the fewer studies I found showed almost three quarters of players returned to play from surgery for a herniated disc. Half of those surgeries were neck fusions.

Johnny Holland? One of those guys.

He reinjured it as I recall.

Fair enough, Johnny Holland did re-injure his neck after spinal fusion.
