My bet is they see the damage to the ACL but don't want to announce it yet.
It is. You can tell with a manual manipulation when the ACL is gone. You could almost tell from the video that his tore the ACL completely. I know they're claiming it's a partial tear of both, but I have a hard time believing it's not a full ACL construction ahead of him.
It's a pain, but the repair should actually make the knee as strong as it was before when it comes to his lateral movement. It's just the distraction and the time getting the musculature build back up, and then the mental hurdle of trusting the repaired leg again. I'm sure he'll be back and a thorn in our side at some point next season.
When asked whether Jason Garrett is the right head coach for this team: "I don't think there is anyone else that could. I think he is an unbelievable coach. We've responded to him and he has made us better football players, better people. If you watch us I think we play with a certain relentless spirit." --Sean Lee
