    Giants' Martellus Bennett Has Torn Knee Capsule Bruised ACL & PCL

    http://www.giants101.com/2012/11/13/...uised-acl-pcl/


    Excerpt: "New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett has been reluctant to divulge the full extent of his knee injury, which was suffered in week five against the Cleveland Browns. Over the last several weeks, he's merely described the pain as if a Panda were sitting on his thigh and chewing on his knee. He's also referred to it as "messed up ****." But on Monday, he finally spilled the beans, revealing that he had suffered a "torn knee capsule" as well as bruises to both his ACL and PCL.

    For all of us non-doctors, a knee capsule, or Articular capsule of the knee joint, is " an envelope surrounding a synovial joint" which includes the patella, ligaments, menisci, and bursae. It can often be torn during awkward bending and twisting of the knee, which occurred during Bennett's hyperextension." Read more...

    Oh for the love of crap...

    guess activating Beckum was the right call after all.

    Is Bear gonna be back for the GB game?

    He's serviceable enough in my mind. Moreso than Beckum.

    If Bennett can't play, Pascoe is the only blocking tight end on the team. Beckum is not a blocking tight end. It could also mean Locklear plays more as TE

    Bear is the next man up and will be fine. I just wonder if Bennett can heal this season or not.
