I don't believe that with what we know, it is a negative. However, it is way too early to be discussing "outlook." If he sustained other significant ligament or cartilage tears of the knee besides an ACL (which unfortunately is not so uncommon), it could explain the 20 week period rather than the 12 or 16 week run start time. On the other hand, it could also give greater reason to be somewhat concerned over the ultimate prognosis for ability to return, time of return, potential later setbacks and level of final performance attainable. Meanwhile, let's just say we'll all try to stay optimistic.
