Default ACL question

What is the criteria for playing through a torn acl? Larry Fitz said Drew Stanton played last 2 weeks on a torn acl and Iíve heard of players doing so in the past (Rivers, Elway).

I wonder if itís most likely agents making a business decision. Wentz with a knee brace is still better than Foles, but I canít begrudge him for protecting his career which is still very bright.

DEPENDS HOW BAD THE INJURY IS. 11's LEG WAS BENDING THE WRONG WAY.

Default there are degree's of a tear,,take Tannihill

he had a partial and didn't opt for surgery and 1 month into camp Bang! Gone...

I had a grade 3 tear of my MCL which is bad,,,did not require surgery but I couldn't run on it for almost 6 months...So some players can play with a grade 1 tear with a brace on after a little rest,,,,With Carson its best; Only the guy who went in and did the work knows how bad it was. if it was close to completely torn, repair it and get him all the way back,,,,this was in his best interest...

Stanton just debunked the story. Bone bruise.

No. Wentz is the franchise. Too risky.

As I understand it, an MCL tear, even a bad tear can usually heal on its own without surgery. An ACL tear typically requires reconstruction to replace the function of the ligament. It's possible for an average person to live and function without an ACL... many people who injure their ACL opt not to get surgery. But for an elite athlete it would require a lot of strength from the muscles across the knee to stabilize the joint.

Sharp turns in direction would be extremely difficult, if not impossible. Maybe you could just drop straight back and pass but there would be little to no mobility. And isn't that one of the b*tches people have about Foles? Also, as you and others have noted the risk of truly catastrophic damage would be extremely high.
