Mathias Kiwanuka apparently not done after all

New, comments

After acknowledging earlier that Mathias Kiwanuka might never play again, Giants GM Jerry Reese has a new message:

"After I spoke to the media this morning at the combine, I had a conversation with (head trainer) Ronnie Barnes, who confirmed for me that last night we did receive the final written evaluation that gives Mathias medical clearance to return to the field," Reese said in a statement issued through team’s PR department. "The consensus of all of the spine physicians and Dr. (Russ) Warren is that it is safe for Mathias to return to play. I have talked to Mathias and he is fully committed to returning to football."

Fastest recovery from a potential career ending injury ever. Maybe next time wait for that info before telling pretty much every major NFL media outlet coast to coast that one of your important players could be done-zo.
