Good news is Mike White should be available to be picked up in most fantasy leagues.

I don’t expect him back for a while, zero point watching this team. The head coach has not balls and JD can’t build a roster to save his life. Apart from that it’s all good.

Wilson was my only reason for watching this season.    Redzone it is till he returns 🤷🏾‍♂️

Quick Google search:

"The duration for a PCL injury also depends on the severity of the sprain, but typically full recovery is achieved between 4 to 12 months"

Also 

PCL injuries are usually partial ligament tears, and typically heal on their own, without causing stability issues, so long as the knee is protected during healing, and there are no other knee joint injuries.

Consider him out for either most of the rest of season or if they go surgical than he’s out till next year 

 

praying it’s a mild PCL sprain but honestly even if it is I’d imagine they want to be as conservative as possible and hold him out on the longer end of the spectrum of recovery.

Zach will be done for the year.  He heard it pop.  Probably best as we can address this oline in the offseason and have a wall for him next year.

St Johns hoops in 2 weeks.  Cant wait!!!

That's bad news I'd have to think.  Maybe a bad sprain then finished it off.

My hope is it’s a relatively minor thing.  Maybe miss 3-4 weeks and reset the brain and sit and learn.  I do think Wilson is far from a lost cause at this point, but it’s been clear he needs some time to learn while the bullets aren’t flying.

I said the same thing to one of my buddies at the bar today.  Sitting him a few weeks may not be the worst thing.  Too bad he won't get to watch how an experineced QB prepares.

No balls? We ran it up the gut on 4th and 1 may I remind you.

Sit him for the year.  It’s all about next year for these guys. 

Dollars to donuts they off to a 0-5 start next year. Take your mortgage payment to Vegas.

I saw his other knee bend bad on the other play, so a grade 2 PCL doesn't sound as bad as what I expected.  

Google search on Grade 2 or 3 PCL injuries:

Classifications of PCL Injuries

Grade 2 (moderate)-The PCL is partially torn and the knee becomes unstable. At this level expect the knee to give out periodically while standing and walking. Grade 3 (severe)-The PCL is completely torn or is separated at its end from the bone that it normally anchors.

That’s incredibly impressive that the Dr. was able to pretty much nail it just from watching the video.

You think that is impressive, we have fans on this board who can diagnose the injury watching the video without any medical background - now that is good.

Yea this really sucks. 
 

This is often treated conservatively if it’s grade 1-2 and it’s isolated injury (which it rarely is) 

if it’s ruptured they’ll likely go for surgery in which case he mayyy not even be ready to start next year. 
 

When this is treated conservatively or even surgically the biggest issue is that the person still says their knee feels unstable. 
 

ugh this sh*t is gunna be damn headache, best hope is that it’s only grade 1-2 AND that no other ligaments are injured.

No chance he fully ruptured his PCL and walked off

It’s hindsight, but starting Zach Wilson from Day One is a disastrous decision that we’ll be paying for for a long time.

Some of us were saying that before they drafted him. He never should’ve started for this team. Biggest mistake Douglas has made and that’s not a small comment.

I am afraid of this as well.  I think there is at least some anecdotal evidence that shows that either sitting a young QB, or at least not throwing him into to learn immediately  on a really bad team, is a very good strategy and vice versa is at best a crap shoot.
