There's no way that Staal hit should have hurt him like that. His knee was toast. Now it's better.
The Staal hit wasn't all that different from the original injury. In both cases it was an unfortunate awkward fall that caused it. If anything, the reinjury probably was because the surrounding muscles weren't yet strong enough to provide adequate defense for the knee against that kind of fall. Which makes it a good sign they're being more careful with his return this time rather than bringing him back as soon as possible.
