I have isolated the play on which Lofa hurt his knee, and it doesn’t look good. For those of you with Tivo, it happens at the 3:15 mark of the second quarter.
As far as knee injuries go, it doesn’t seem like his knee was popped, which is usually a good sign. His knee was bent and then pushed from the inside to an awkward angle. My first thought was that it might be a bad high ankle sprain. However, Lofa actually plays the next play, but he struggles pushing off the knee and then walks off.
Lets hope the prognosis is better than a sprained knee or a high ankle. Either way, I wouldn’t be counting on Lofa playing by week one right now. I hope I am wrong. ~END~
