Some big linebacker type guy who was probably 6'4 235 and me 5'11 155 went after a lose ball and he ran smack into my knee. Then my knee gave away. I mean i couldnt even stand for 5 mins. I kept playing on it for like 3 weeks bought a knee brace and stuff, but it really wasnt helping

I waited bout a month to get it checked out. and i had a meniscus tear, but I said no to surgery because that is like a last option for me. If i stopped playing that day it was injured and let it heal on its own i would of been back in a month tops. But because i kept playing on it it took me half a year and still hurts time to time to this day
