Default Re: Adrian Peterson tears ACL, needs reconstructive surgery

People seem tobe writing AP's injury as "nothing serious, he'll bounce back". First off, even with the advancement of medical technology, a torn ACL is still a serious injury. Guys have had their careers ended over torn ACL's. Second, AP tore his MCL in addition to his ACL. He tore 2 major knee ligaments at the same time. Third, the position he plays requires speed and agility. He won't be as explosive as he was. He can come back and still be effective, but that won't be for some time(assuming he does).
