Even with just one of these injuries, it was bound to be a tough road ahead for him, let alone two. He can still come back and be a solid contributor, but I think his days of being one of the top stars in the league is sadly over.
The stats were not declining...his ypc was up...he was a top 5 rusher while healthy...

He still has many elite years left.
