If it’s an ACL that doesn’t matter.  I tore my ACL in my last game for high school football.  I did full unlimited basketball practice for 2 weeks before it finally got checked out. You can walk pretty pain free with a blown ACL.  It’s moving laterally that is the issue.

Yeah, he'll be iffy for the combine but back for OTA's with whoever gives him a shot.  I say we grab him.

Why do players today tear ACLs like crazy when such an injury was unheard of in the 60s and 70s and was rare in the 80s ??  Is it a combination of being ripped plus the artificial turf?  Are players just too big for their knee joints?  You can strengthen your quad and hamstrings and calves, but not your ligaments.

I could be wrong here, but back before Dr. James Andrews came along, weren’t ACL injuries were career ending?

Ligaments don't get stronger.

Bigger, heavier, faster, better cutting on turf, it is just such a shearing force the ligaments can't handle it.
