@cardsfan27 - I agree with you. I remember many years ago that someone's career may be over if they tore their ACL, but today it is obviously not the case. I have also heard that some people are born without ACL's and I wonder how this is possible.
I know there is a wide receiver in the NFL for the Pittsburgh Steelers that does not have an ACL in one knee and he is one of the greatest and most accomplished receivers in the game. It astounds me how that is possible, but I guess that he does not have to worry about having to miss a season due to tearing it.
