Single surgical screw ?

Dear all,

I am an applicant for the para's/officer,

though recently have seperated my AC joint(shoulder) at judo practice.
I have an immediate operation soon, to correct and normal function is expected 12 weeks after surgery.

Im correctly informed that after 12 weeks I can return to contact sports (judo,rock climbing etc). pro rugby players,ice hockey players and mma fighters have had this exact problem/procedure and have returned to elite levels, so there is no question of my full function returning (with proper rehab etc).

though I will have a single stainless steel screw in my collar bone to encourage tendon/ligament growth, will this bar me for entry alone even if I am superfit and superfunctional???
