Although he will take a day of rest today and be out of the office the rest of the week, he will begin his rehab Tuesday. His rehab will consist of working with the MSU athletic training department 1 hour a day, five days a week, as well as doing some exercises on his own. According to Mock, his rehab could take up to "6 to 8 weeks," although that's the worst case scenario. Mock is hopeful Coach Croom will be 100% healed before then.
While Coach Croom doesn't want a fuss made of this, I know there are probably many of you who would like to mail him a get-well note or card. You can mail them to the MSU Football Office, attention Coach Sylvester Croom.
