Default Re: Wade Smith had knee scoped last night

Today, Dougherty reports that the Texans described Smith as having a "deep bone bruise."

The deeper the bone bruise signifies greater damage to the involved bone and greater likelihood of significant associated injuries.

CnD,

I read the events and reports that they likely went into the knee to clean up torn cartilage and discovery to see what they fear: significant cartilage loss leading to something close to bone on bone, requiring the dreaded microfacture surgery... or constant pain and further deterioration... or retirement.

Correct me where I may be misguided.
