It took me 6 months before I was fine when I fractured a vertebrae. I did everything alright but any kind of a jolt to my body sent pain throughout. Any doctor is going to tell him his line of work will be hazardous to his health in a condition such as that.. another accident of similar style could leave him wheel chair racing if he did injure his back...
He has proven many wrong before, but this one just seems a little different then most... they are being too quiet about the extent of it and that leads me to wonder what is going on...

Undated-- Denny Hamlin suffered a compression fracture in his lower back during Sunday's last-lap crash at Fontana, Calif.
Joe Gibbs Racing disclosed the injury Monday and said Hamlin was expected to be released soon from a Southern California hospital to return home. He has what is called an L1 compression fracture; essentially, the first vertebra in the lumbar section of his spine collapsed.
There was no immediate word on how long his recovery would take.
Hamlin was hurt during a crash with Joey Logano at the end of Sunday's race. He complained of lower back pain afterward.
This is going to get interesting... I knew by all the hush hush and over night stay this was probably going to be the case... Tough break Denny... literally...
