Don't Break Out the Domanick Jerseys Just Yet...

According to Rick Smith, it's not looking good for the return of the franchise's all-time leading rusher:

"Domanick actually went and visited the doctor.  He had some swelling in his knee.  He's been doing a really nice job in the rehab process and it actually had gotten to a point in the rehab process where he was strength training more than anything.  He had some swelling in his knee a couple of weeks ago and we sent him to a specialist in Atlanta, and he's going to have to have some additional surgery, so the jury's still out on where he is in his rehab process.  He did experience a setback, so we're not sure what's going to happen with Domanick."

I'm no doctor, but that doesn't sound good.  In my vast medical experience, additional surgery is usually not the final step before someone is cleared to practice.  And when your GM is dropping phrases like "the jury's still out" and "we're not sure what's going to happen," it may be cause to hold off on printing that "Welcome Back, Domanick!" banner.
