As some of you know Matt made the 15ex main on Sunday in Lexington in only his third national in expert. He finished last but was still in the show 😀 That’s the good news.
Now for the bad. He crashed in practice on Friday night and hurt his knee. He said it wasn’t too bad and he could put his full weight on it within 10 minutes. The ambulance crew checked him over and found nothing visible.
Today his knee gave out on him in school. And by the time he got home he couldn’t walk on it. The doc suspects a partially torn LCL. Not very common. And hopefully it won’t require surgery. He is scheduled for an MRI tomorrow to find out how bad it is. 😥
A torn acl that is not completely tweaked should be able to be repaired by arthroscopy. Virtually painless.
If there is no real swelling then it probably isn’t that bad.
I always cringe when I see people straight leg land any jump..
