    Heard on NFL Network no player has ever returned to start after 3 knee sugeries on same knee. NO PLAYER in history of NFL kinda makes you sad right?

    I had actually read an article that supposedly once you tear an ACL any tear after that does not diminish the ABILITY of the reconstructed ACL. The problem is the psychological impact of the rehab; not the actual physical aspect of it.

    In other words... if T2 can mentally get over the rehab process his ACL will be no worse then what it was after his first tear.

    Psychological rather than physical? Tell that to his three times torn ACL.

    No player has recovered from a 3 time torn ACL but there is a player attempting it now (Carolina I believe).

    Not sure I would call it "psychological", as much as I'd call it stigma received from teams on a repeatedly repaired body part and time away from the game. Let's face it, most organizations would much rather cut their losses and take on a new prospect then they would give a chance to a 'prone to injury, damaged goods, 27 year old'.

    It's not so much the recovery that affects people in this situation, it's the ability to be get a chance.

    Just saying...

    Is this a new or old news?

    And, let's be honest, unless Prince has the most horrible year ever (hoping he doesn't though, knock on wood), T2 will be hard pressed to have a place on the team, even without the 3rd ACL tear...
