I think the only serious injury Gerhart encountered was a torn PCL. While serious, it is not terrible. Jerry Rice tore his PCL, and still played for 20 years I am not saying to expect that kind of career from Gerhart, I am just saying as far as knee injuries go, it sounds like a PCL is not too bad. At least, its not bad enough for me to negatively shift his ranking.
Actually, one of the people with medical knowledge, what should we expect from the torn PCL? How bad is it, career wise?
You're probably right. I'm leery of RB's with injury histories and tend to overreact.
I thought Gerhart had 2 knee injuries. 1 ACL and 1 PCL. I think he missed 1 yr due to his knee. But dont know where to find that info.
C-N-D should be an authority on injuries.
I would like to know how C-N-D thinks OD is going to be able to come back from his 2nd ACL surgery?
