with a foot injury, how do you do it? Steven should be able to acclimate quickly, but it is going to be difficult for Josh. What type of exercise can the guy do while he heals up? Yoga?

Med,

It seems like the bike may be hard on the foot? Will he be in a boot?

Josh is in a boot. I saw him this evening cheering on the lady Zags, along with Big Will, and Steven. There may have been other players in attendence, but I only saw those 3.

Depends on his foot surgery. However there's been a shift in paradigm lately in orthopaedics to resume range of motion as soon as possible after surgery. Biking involves a lot of dorsiflexion and plantarflexion of the foot, so its good for rehab. Plus its non-weight bearing, so there's little risk of stress on the healing bone. Considering he had a pretty simple surgery (just adding a couple screws), I'm sure biking will be involved in his regimen.

As was stated, pool workouts are also another option. Not sure if they'll have him in the pool as soon after surgery though.
