Absolutely unreal the luck we have with injuries. Stingley, Boutte, and now Smith all had season ending injuries in their sophomore seasons.
Also happened to K’Lavon Chaisson in the first game of 2018.
Unbelievable. What a way to get injured.
I hate it for any player, but especially one that has put in the hard work during the offseason and was headed for a huge season. I have no doubt he's going to put in the hard work and come back next year ready to show out!
The more I think about it, should have gone for 2. FSU was stunned.
ACL injuries really suck. I tore mine TWICE in 1986, which led to a total knee replacement in May of this year.
In short, once an ACL is torn, it is seriously compromised. After all these years, I finally have a strong left knee again...but only because it's artificial.
Modern surgical and rehabilitation techniques have advanced significantly since then. Now people come back full strength in less than a year. Players return as good as new. I can’t say what the long term impact will be, but he can return at full strength next season.
Did he get injured jumping up to celebrate?
yes, freak accident… it wasn’t a wild celebration or anything like that
