. Keep in mind it looks like a sprain but he is going to see his doctor in Cleveland to make sure he won't require surgery. If he has the surgery, he will be out 3 to 5 months.
Makes sense...I looked at the reply over and over again and I don't see where his knee buckled or twisted to have caused a tear. A sprain is what I always thought was going to be the outcome, even when he was taken off the ice he put 'some' weight on his knee, had he torn the ACL, he wouldn't of been able to do that.
Let's just hope it's just a sprain...8-10 weeks would be a near Godsend at this point.
