Quote:
One year ago, on the opening Monday night matchup between the Miami Dolphins and New England, Patriots Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins tore his right anterior cruciate ligament, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Not only did Mankins finish the Monday night game, he finished the season, becoming one of the rare, if not the only, players to have played an entire 16-game season with a torn ACL.

Mankins' problems only multiplied in the playoffs. In the Patriots' postseason win over the Denver Broncos, Mankins tore the medial collateral ligament in his left knee, leading him to play the Super Bowl against the New York Giants with torn ligaments in each knee.

But when Mankins goes up against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, it will be six months since he underwent surgery on his torn ACL and one year since he suffered the injury.

Toughness level:

Mankins > Chapman > Rivers

I felt his 2011 season wasn't as strong as his previous years, now we know why... pretty amazing he was able to play an entire season with a torn ACL and it shows his toughness.

Does it specify whether it was partially torn or completely? Big Ben waits for the answer....

FIFY. Matt Slauson started every game last season with a torn labrum, rotator cuff, and biceps.

Chapman played with a torn ACL and MCL IIRC for 8 games at NT where he had to come out of a 3 point stance every single down he was in. And he was arguably one of the best DTs in the country. He was a monster.

Fine. But Slauson is still tougher than Rivers.

No doubt. But you'd have to chain Rivers down to keep him from playing a season on a torn ACL. Wink

Geez man why'd he go so late in the draft?

Didn't get surgery until after the season, so he wasn't going to be ready. Is on the PUP list right now IIRC. He's really really good.

Strong will probably, I hope this humble act doesn't prove to be a bad one with his legs
