    I think if he thinks he can play, let him. Its the damn Super Bowl.

    If they do let him play and he get hurt, what then? In his condition he could never play again with another injury. If that happens and they loose then it was for nothing. I doubt they will win anyways, the Pats are nothing less than amazing due (in large par) to the coaching staff. Dont risk it there is next year.

    He's not qualified to decide whether or not he's physically able to play.

    I wouldn't risk winding up like Grant Hill even to play in the Super Bowl. If he heals properly, they're right back there again next year.

    If the team physician doesn't clear him and the Iggles get creamed, how will the Iggles fans react? Hopefully he has an unlisted number...

    If he does play... he will not finish the game... and possibly done for his career...I had that injury... there are numerous problems...

    the bones are connected to each other via a plate and screws.. there's no give to this configuration which seems to be a good thing but in this case, the worst... a lateral twist could actually force the fibula to rebreak... especially since that bone is not completely healed...

    lastly, the muscles/tendons/ligaments that support that whole area have inevitably been damaged... they may be fine in dealing with most anything TO would subject them to.. with his own weight and motion .. what they will not be able to handle will be when any addl force is subjected on them by a defender...

    I think this is a smokescreen and hype... if he attempts to play, I seriously doubt he'll make it thru practices...
