    Tuftee

    It was reported he tore his meniscus in the pre game warm up? Can anybody confirm? If so, he is likely done for the year.

    That was the tv report. Explains some of the poor line play with needing to gel again. Tough year for injuries upfront.

    If true, at least the O-line will have a couple weeks to figure out how to play together.

    Re: Tuftee

    Didn't he hurt his knee in high school too and that's why he grayshirted? Hopefully he comes through this.

    Re: Tuftee

    I think he tore his ACL in school. He went JUCO for a year to get his grades up too.

    Re: Tuftee

    Torn meniscus isn't that bad. Scope and some PT and then take the spike the rest of the year


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    he did went to high school with him and had to replace him on the offensive line. those are some pretty big shoes to fill.

    Re: Tuftee

    I tore my meniscus in high school. I also continued to run track, play volleyball, and then basketball before I had surgery 10 months later (my small-town doc was clueless until you could no longer see my kneecap). A torn meniscus does suck and will eventually likely require surgery, but he may still be able to play this season.

    Re: Tuftee

    Heard he was going in on Monday to have his meniscus repaired on one of his knees anyway. Now that he has both knee issues who knows what they will do on Monday. He will be missed if he is out. He has been really steady this year. I do like what I see from Jacob Gannon in the last few games. He will get better and better each game on out.

    Ahhh. I meniscus repair takes a lot more healing time than just a removal of the torn area. With a repair, they try to suture the cartilage back together, but it takes time to heal since cartilage doesn't have a good blood supply. If this is the case, while I'm no MD, he's probably done for the season.

    Bummer.
