Big A woke up this morning with his knee hurting pretty badly.
His visit to the hospital confirmed the pain. He tore his lower collateral ligament. On a scale of 1-3, the doctor thinks it is a 2-3 in severity.
Thankfully, this is not one of the two major ligaments (anterior cruciate [ACL] and medial collateral} that you are accustomed to hearing about it you follow sports at all.
His wrestling season is finished. He will not be competing in the Junior National Freestyle Championship in Fargo, ND next week. Instead, he will be wearing a pretty serious knee brace for the next 5-6 weeks while the ligament heals.
With the Super Crew out of commission, I just have to figure out how we are going to pick him up.
