His knee is now going to be twice as easily injured with 2 tears than a perfectly normal un injured knee. He should have been out till atleast Jan IMHO from suffering similar injuries and coming back too quickly I did nothing but re injure my knee.
I thought when they fixed the knee that they used a ligament that was perfectly healthy to replace the other one, meaning that once healed the new one would be better than the old, does this make sense?

Also, he would have been wearing a brace, would this not help avoid future ACL and MCL injuries going forward?
