Harry Kane no longer wearing leg brace; may actually be Wolverine.

Temper expectations, but Harry might be a superhero.

The final international break of the season enters its second week, leaving us site bloggers with little to write about other than giving you generic threads for those friendlies. One of the biggest questions that we all have is how long is it going to take Harry Kane to get back to 100% following his injury just a couple weeks ago. It hasn’t hurt Spurs yet, given that they’ve scored seven goals in the two matches without him, but with some big fixtures on the horizon, we obviously want the best striker in the world out there.

Today, a harmless image taken at Hotspur Way has sent Spurs’ twitter into a frenzy.

There are a few ways to look at this.

1) Harry isn’t wearing the brace while walking around because he doesn’t need it for regular activity.

2) Harry has secretly been drinking unicorn’s blood.

3) Harry has been training with John Cena. Cena is well-known for healing faster from injuries than anyone in a business that is as harsh on the body as any.

4) Harry is actually Wolverine.

So here we are, March 25, a week away from a fixture with Chelsea that could mean solidifying Champions League football or creating the biggest logjam possible with seven matches to play, because this is what the table looks like right now:

Simply put, a win this weekend at Stamford Bridge puts Spurs eight up on the Blues with seven to play. It would also move them past Liverpool and level on matches played. Having Kane going into that Chelsea match could mean a world of difference.

Then again, look at the offense while he’s been out. If he isn’t fully fit, perhaps this team has learned how to get on without him for a few matches.

Either way, let the speculation start because all we’re going to hear about this week is Mauricio saying “We’ll evaluate him” right up until kickoff.
