Sure, it could happen. However, rotator cuff repairs are unpredictable; especially severe ones (e.g., his was 90% torn). Everybody is different, but shoulders are notoriously rogue when it comes to healing.
A torn labrum is a huge deal. It's the most feared shoulder injury in sports. And for good reason.
To put it into perspective, most weight lifters don't feel 80+% until after a year (after slap tear... labral... repairs).
I can attest to this (having had a torn labrum and also AC joint surgery). Let's hope for the best. I want to see Cain vs JDS ASAP! I dont want to hear excuses when JDS knocks him out.
