    Re: Willie Offord torn ACL!

    I had a torn ACL, actually I split mine in two. This was back in 1986, they took a chunk of muscle out of my thigh and put in my knee for a new ACL!

    I spent 4 days in the hospital having my knee go back and forth on a machine, I was on Morphine so it did not hurt! Then I spent 3 weeks in a wheel chair, 5 months on crutches, 6 months rehabbing and learning to walk again.

    wasn't irvin learning to be a safety? I though I recall reading that a while back.

    As for ACL operation and rehab, I know that athletes can be fast-tracked and be at 100% in about 6 months. That would make Willie ready to play for the ides of March!

    An MRI on Vikings safety Willie Offord's left knee revealed a tear of his anterior cruciate ligament, and he has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Atlanta, coach Mike Tice said. Tice, though, did not elaborate on how long Offord would be out, beyond the upcoming game.


    BUMMAGE! Suppose it could be a matter of degrees though...since they are not definitively saying "season ending"...yet!
