Deuce McAllister Injury
by Predictem.com Staff
New Orleans Saints starting running back Deuce McAllister will miss the rest of the 2007-2008 NFL football season after tearing a knee ligament in last night’s Monday Night Football game vs. the Tennessee Titans.
The injury occurred in the 2nd quarter of the game when he caught a pass and landed awkwardly.
Tuesday morning, McAllister was sent in for an MRI exam. The exam showed that his left anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) was torn. He also sustained damage to his medial collateral ligament. This is a very serious injury and at best if he were to have surgery now and to start rehabbing, he may be able to give it a go at the start of the 2008 NFL season.

What’s particularly sad about this injury is that he sustained the same injury to his right knee two years ago and fought his way back to have a productive 2006 NFL season in which he rushed for over 1000 yards.
Reconstructive knee surgery for a 28 year old NFL running back may mean the end of his productive career. One could only think that if he were to return that he’d only be a shadow of once he once was.
At this time, Deuce is playing by ear to see how it all goes.
