After Sunday I’m less concerned about how long it takes Wentz to get back, and way more concerned about how long it’s going to take for Fisher to play.  

Sounds like Fisher is very close. I would say if he can start practicing next couple of weeks he will be ready.

Let the good news keep coming.  Prediction:  Wentz,Q, and Fisher all start game one.

I originally thought Fisher wouldnt be back until week 8, now Im thinking opening day is more then 50/50

I don't think Fisher will start week 1 right now, but I think he could come back sooner than expected. Maybe miss only a week or two? Wentz and Nelson I like for a week 1 return now. :)

With Fisher he is a vet. They really don’t have  need to move him off PUP yet. He also played all last season so really he is probably working out and getting ready. He is a guy that probably only needs a couple weeks practice. Kind of like Q.

Reich today didn’t rule him out game one. He has said he looks very good and could put pads on.

I’ve always been optimistic on Wentz and Nelson being back in time for the start of the season. 
 

But not so much with Fisher.   And I’m still not there…. Yet.   The timeline for him most often mentioned was October.  Roughly missing 5-6 weeks.   I’m not ready to think he’s going to be good at the start of the season.  I’m not even at 50/50.   I still think he’s likely to miss a few weeks. 
 

Clearly I hope I’m wrong.   Nothing would make me happier than to be wrong on Fisher. But I’d also add, he’s not close to being up to speed with the rest of the OL.   He’s going to need some time to be ready for the regular season.  I’m sure we will give it to him.

That’s never been official.  Just speculation.

Crazy how 2 weeks changes everything. 2 weeks ago season was over because Wentz was going to be out for 6 games. Now Fisher missing 6 weeks may have a bigger impact than Wentz would have.

 It's at times an amusing read how WE have a Clue about a players rehab progress and overall health and feel comfortable pontificating our knowledge on it.

 Like i'm 80% that Flus is on the sidelines next Saturday. Not that i know what day his lockdown started, i just wanted to get MY number posted so i can give myself a big attaboy, and yes maybe look wise to MY homies, when I NAIL IT! Come on Flus!!!

Unlike Wentz’s and Q’s injury, Fisher’s injury is relatively common to football and an expected return timeframe is well understood and documented.  A return Week 1 would not be within this timeframe, even on the early side.  If he would return, I’d question how he was able to but all others have not - and worry about a re-injury.

Who really has any solid information (that they can source) that Fisher will be ready in September? 

I think we have to go off of the realistic timeline of an October return..... If he manages a start of October return, and needs to miss the 3rd Oct game vs the Dolphins, then he would only miss 4 games and is back against the Ravens on MNF.

First 4 opponents would be:

Seahawks
Rams
Titans
Dolphins

- coming out of that 1 - 3 wouldnt be the END of the world
- come out 2 - 2 and we would be smiling

If he can go I hope he can be his mobile self right away.  Wentz needs to be able to practice those two weeks after camp is over until the first game.

So basically he would have Philip river’s mobility for a couple weeks lol
