    Has anyone heard the status of Lafell's injury? It looked nasty and with the way his leg/knee was bent underneath him...I am fearing ripped up knee ligaments. Anyone with any updates please let us know.

    Haven't heard, but it looked pretty serious. He'll have a month, and I hope it gets better soon

    Being optomistic, he was bent backwards. Most ACL's come from lateral pulls. Of course, this is just guessing, but I would feel alot worse if he hurt it being turned.

    I am hoping it is just an MCL strain, praying it is not an ACL.

    I am in the same boat. I've had an MCL tear before. It took about a month before I could run on it again. Not that I run at the same speed as Lafell, or anywhere close. I'm hoping its a type 1 and not a type two

    The way his leg folded back under his thigh is not what one usually sees with an ACL. Rumor is, it is not serious.

    What are the sources of these rumors? How legit are they? Think Miles will actually tell us something about it tomorrow?

    Yes. Miles will say Lafell has a great "want to" not be injured.
