You are exactly correct here. I don't know the exact extent of the injury but I remember them saying that this was exactly what ended Bo's career. Also, from what they were saying last year, there really haven't been much in the way of medical advances for this type of injury. It was still very likely that this injury was career ending for Emery. The proceedure may have been a success but it remains to be seen if he has the full ability to move as needed to play professionaly again.
