    How could it be his knee? The announcer kept saying he was hit in the thigh..........idiot!

    I could tell right away he was hit at the knee.


    I'm just glad it wasn't more serious.
    that announcer was an idiot the whole game

    Re: Adrian Peterson's Injury: NOT ACL

    Sorry Gator - he has earned it...he should be called whatever he wants to be called.

    He is a warrior, I would not be surprised if it is worse than we all think due to his toughness.
    My fingers are crossed.

    Re: Adrian Peterson's Injury: NOT ACL

    The article on Yahoo Sports quotes Peterson as saying it was the knee.
    States he took the hit as soon as he planted the leg.
    Also quoted as saying he tried to lobby Childress to let him go back in a couple of series later.
    He said it felt fine and he did some jogging on the sideline.
    Hopefully this will be just a nasty bruise or sprain and nothing more.

    I agree.
    One bad game out of 9 and suddenly he hasn't earned anything?
    And considering that AD is usually at his best in the 4th, I don't even know if I would call this a bad game.

    He had more yards in the 1st half of this game than he did last week.

    If it is a sprain, then he tore a ligament. That is what a sprain is. The question will be which one, The ACL (ruled out?) MCL, the PCL or the LCL.

    I tore 3 out of 4 in mine and it seems the LCL and the MCL are the ones that you can recover from better. The ACL will tear first before the PCL and if you tear both of those it is going to be a bad day.

    Hopefully it will just be a slight tear of the mcl and he will just get immobilized for a short time and then return..


    Also, it is not uncommon to find tears of the meniscus cartilage when the ACL or MCL are damaged so this could potentially show up on an MRI.. I pray it won't.
    A knee sprain is a knee injury, but it isn't necessarily a tear.
    It can be a wrenched or twisted ligament as well, which is a lot better than a tear.
    To call it a sprain without a tear would be very rare.


    Grades

    Knee sprains are graded according to their severity. In addition, the more ligaments that are involved means the more severe the injury.



    * Grade 1





    o Stretching and microtearing of ligament tissue


    * Grade 2





    o Partial tearing of ligament tissue





    o Mild instability of the joint when tested


    * Grade 3





    o Severe or complete tearing of ligament tissue





    o Significant instability of the joint



    Here is the definition. Note that even a grade 1 sprain has microtears along with stretching.

    Not to be picky, but a grade 1 sprain is not a torn ligament.
    I know that the term is microtearing, but a microtear and a tear (or even a partial tear) are very different things - and have very different implications.

    Anyway, it is just semantics anyway.
    Your original post implied that a sprain meant he had at least a "slight tear".
    I am hoping it is just a Grade 1 sprain.
