    Culpepper surgery complete

    Posted on Tue, Nov. 15, 2005
    From the San Jose Mercury News;
    Associated Press


    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Minnesota Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper had surgery Tuesday to repair three torn ligaments in his right knee.

    Culpepper, who was hurt on a low hit after running for first down on Oct. 30 at Carolina, had the operation done by noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala.

    The team said the surgery went as expected, and the three-time Pro Bowl pick is expected to be ready to participate in training camp next season - which means a recovery time of about nine months. Rehabilitation will begin immediately for Culpepper, who injured the anterior cruciate, medial collateral and posterior cruciate ligaments in the knee.

    "Daunte is the type of player who is going to work extremely hard to get back on the field," Vikings coach Mike Tice said. "He has the heart of a champion. His motivation to be the best will drive him as he works through this

    "If at first you don't succeed, parachuting is not for you"

    I don't think he will ever be as mobile as he once was after this. So, he either will have to learn to relax more in the pocket or will wash out of the league ... only time will tell.

    Nor do I, he might still be a bit rusty after coming back, but hopefully he'll be more sharp.. and hopefully by then he'll have a little protection from the o-line as well.

    glad to hear it went as expected as well to hear that his rehab should be done around the time training camp starts so he won't lose much time with the first unit while camp is going on.

    Thanks Josdin

    The QB job belongs to brad as far as I am concerned. Daunte can compete with Shaun Hill for the back up role and if he aint' happy with that, I say we send his ass packing to green bay and get farve and go 16-0 (according to michael irvin).

    The same injury didn't stop McGahee...so I expect Daunte to be just fine once he heals! :grin:
