The knee feels loose, but walkable. When you dangle it, that's when the pain comes in and there's no lateral movement. My hit was from indoor soccer though.
The injury I had took 4-5 months to recover from with only light running allowed, no physical activity.
Let's hope he is mentally and physically ready to come back in 4 weeks, but to be honest I think that's a super optimistic timeframe. I'd say about 2-4 months for a pro athlete.
i think there is a wide range of possible outcomes from this injury, obviously dependent upon the severity of the original damage... but i think you are correct that the time line could easily be up to 4-5 months.... we won't know until we know
