On Saturday, news broke about Browns rookie running back Montario Hardesty twisting a knee, causing him to miss training camp for at least a couple of weeks.
During a press conference Monday, Browns coach Eric Mangini said Hardesty twisted his right knee. That might raise concerns because of this: In college, Hardesty had surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee. He also had an operation on his left knee, but it was reported as a minor surgery.
On Saturday, Mangini said, "It wasn’t anything related to those injuries, so it was nothing that was a pre-existing type of situation."
That might be true. But on a personal note, I had surgery to repair a torn ACL in my right knee, and that is definitely not the knee I would want to twist.
