I think something needs to be clarified for people. Everyone has a plantar fascia. It's tissue at the bottom of the foot.
Red Bryant had/has Plantar fasciitis, which is a painful inflammation of the plantar fascia.
The reports were that Zach Miller tore his plantar fascia. He did not have plantar fasciitis.
Reports about Avril are that he injured his plantar fascia. Reports don't say he has Plantar fasciitis.
Red's issue affect the same area of the body, but are not the same thing as Miller or Avril.
I'm quoting this because most people tend to overlook intelligent posts such as this to continue to form their opinions against the facts.
Bryant most likely will have to monitor his foot every day and take special caution not to aggravate his injury.
Miller's issue was a tear, perhaps not a serious one, which is explains why he was able to continue playing at a reasonably high level vs Atlanta. And why he's already back on the field during the workout and OTA phases and there hasn't really been any reports out questioning his status of health while many though this injury would handicap him through this off-season and possibly linger into training camp and beyond.
Avril's injury sounds like more of just a deep bruise that he has to allow to heal and should be back to form in a couple of months or in the very least ready and 100% by training camp. And people can take a deep breathe before they faint from their constant state of panic over Seahawk pass-rushers.
