CT confirmation of healing spleen

Dear all
I would appreciate the opinion of the members on the CT confirmation  
of a healed ruptured spleen. The CT scan is of a 20 year old male  
injured in a MVC - initial CT showing a splenic injury managed  
conservatively and another 6 months later showing a ? fibrous band  
joining the 2 fragments.

Is this sufficient evidence to allow him to go back to contact sports?  
Or is the band expected to narrow even further in the future?

Thanks very much
