Any time a timetable is given for an injury return mid-season, double it to get an idea of the earliest possible date of return.
Well, it was a minor procedure. My brother had a meniscus torn, surgery to fix it, and everything is fine for him today. However, I agree with you on the recovery time. Just because the procedure is minor doesn't mean he's going to heal that quickly. I originally thought around 5 weeks for his recovery.
