Crappy turf saved Zachs knee


Facts

Recommended Posts

The ACL tear mechanism was clear by video, but two things likely saved Wilson: the loose turf and his previous PCL injury in the same knee.

After the game, Jets' head coach Robert Saleh commented on the new sod and loose turf.

Saleh said the Eagles stadium "has a new sod so it wasn't as firm as you'd want it to be. It was just laid down on I think the 29th. Hadn't been used yet."

Poor footing lowers the chance of an ACL tear. A loose ski binding helps prevent ACL tear, where the ski staying on enhances the chance. On wet days, ACL tears don't usually happen. Thus the poor footing helped spare Wilson's ACL.

Clearly the right knee shifts as Wilson cuts back. The presumption was the knee went from a normal position forward and tears the ACL. 

Given that Wilson had a PCL tear in this knee last year, he has residual posterior laxity. PCL tears (unlike ACL tears) heal without surgery but often there is residual laxity. 

If the visual shifting was Wilson's knee starting more posterior than normal and shifting forward before being stopped by an intact ACL (or only partially tears).

For some reason this article reminds me of this pre-draft comment about Darnold: “He’s like a cow on ice skates.”

That is all.

Zach's own terrible, awkward movement and a prior injury saved him from a worse injury.  Can't make this stuff up!

In other words your original prognosis was wrong.

sounds elegant, and delicious.

 

@The Crusher consumed one and then used the skates to floss.

I buy it

The good doc is seldom wrong

People keep ignoring his track record.

Even Albert Einstein was wrong at times. 

Dr Chao is right most of the time. Doesnt mean he is 100%.

Both Einstein — whose own theory hypothesized the existence of black holes — and Stephen Hawking stated they did not think any actually existed. Hawking lost a bet with Kip Thorne on this question, in fact.

Couple of fuggin doofuses.

It's a blessing in disguise but it SCREAMS for the question:

If softer surfaces prevent ACL tears at some level than why in the hell is grass not mandated for every field?

 

It boggles

 

Cause $. Muddy games don’t sell.

Yes   Natural grass that most likely saved a far more serious injury 

Sounds like we are about to start the monthly discussion about turf v sod at MetLife. The argument trotted out each time is that you can’t play the games on two schedules and have the Turf hold up over a 34 game season. It’s not as easy as saying well in Green Bay they have turf - way up north.

the sod would need to be replaced often. $$$$$

Not discussing as it’s been discussed multiple times. Just pointed out that natural grass saved a far more serious injury to poster that replied about natural grass

That's actually kind of interesting. Quick Woody, move the team to London.
