Lynch's thumb "ready" - Denver Post - Bill Williamson
Wednesday, February 09, 2005 - Just to make sure, John Lynch had his left thumb checked one final time Tuesday before hitting the field for the first time since surgery. "It's all ready to go," the Broncos safety said before practice for Sunday's Pro Bowl. "The Broncos' medical staff did a great job with it and it shouldn't bother me during the game. There should be no problems." It has been nearly three weeks since Lynch had surgery, in which five pins were inserted into his thumb. He will play Sunday for the AFC with a cast over his thumb and much of his hand and is expected to be healed well before the Broncos start training camp in July.
