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 came back from the same injury after a month. Course I wasnt 100% and I had to pay differently....
2 months sounds about right for a pro athlete.
