Tell Chris your opinion.

A little under a year ago, the Cleveland Browns 2006-2007 season received a major blow when center LeCharles Bentley suffered a serious injury on the first day of training camp. Through the entire season and parts of the offseason, it was often speculated that Bentley would "definitely need surgery", "would miss the entire 2008 season", or "would be forced to retire". For the time being, none of those statements will be coming true.

Today was decision time for Bentley, and he has decided NOT to have further knee surgery yet. Although Bentley can decide to change his mind at any time of course, the fact that he did not commit to it already surely shows that there is some hope for him returning this season. It is expected that in three to four weeks, Bentley will inform the Browns on whether or not he will opt to have surgery or if he'll attempt to participate in training camp.

Although it would be absolutely fantastic if Bentley could have a Braylon Edwards type of comeback in training camp, I don't expect things to be that easy. I would bank on Bentley attempting training camp, eventually resulting in him being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. Then, the Browns could bring him back Week 7, basically giving him two to three extra months of rehab before returning to the lineup.
