    I'm not so sure that the MCL, PCL, and meniscus aren't in cahoots.

    i wasnt watching closely to see if he was, but i think he needs to wear a brace on it. it can't affect it that much since its his plant leg. i do want him back though. he saved us last week

    Sep has been an asset to this team and will be missed the rest of this year.
    I hope he comes back.



    Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.

    I disagree. His punt from the back of the end zone last week (forced to stand 4-5 yards closer to his snapper and the oncoming rush) and then launching the sucker over the returner's head for a 60+ yard boot (and subsequent fumble) was a huge part of our win over Buffalo last week.

    They'll give him the ACL from a new cadaver, he'll rehab again, and he'll be back. I'm no doctor, but I don't think there is any reason to believe that the previous ACL tears in the same knee will have anything to do with how the latest one will stand up. Each of those ligaments were completely different (his own the first time, and from two different cadavers each of the last two times). The new cadaver ligament they will surgically implant this time will have no idea that the previous anterior cruciate ligaments were torn...that shouldn't make any difference at all, right?

    The kid is still a weapon. It's not like he's a WR or CB where these surgeries could result in a loss of speed or something vital to his profession like that. It's his plant leg. All he has to do is land on it after punting with his left foot. Stabilize that sucker, and he should be good to go after the necessary rehab.
    he still has to run to cut off an angle once in a while

    that how he got hurt last night
