Partially, one would have to assume. A fully torn ACL would have him unable to walk.

Can you partially tear the ACL...?

Plenty of people tear their ACLs and dont do shiz for it. They can wlak fine if they are careful; they just cannot run or plant off of it. With the proper knee brace & well developed hamgstrings/quads, he would be able to have limited movement at decent strength.

A receiver or running back or CB, though, could never do that.

No surprise. We've all seen what this guy looks like with a beard.

I cant help but feel like this is a lie, but it seems legit.

Pretty stupid of Bellichek to let him play. One bad chop block would've ended his career in an instant, or even worse. An incredible feat, without question, but a totally unnecessary one.

I'm tired of some unknown source coming out every season to name a said Patriots player had played an entire season injured. Makes the Patriots look like they're always coming up with an excuse for their struggles. And I'm sure this has nothing to do with the Pats, sans the constant same source...

I cant imagine playing an interior line position would require much flexibility with the knee. Perhaps for leverage, still amazing nevertheless.

Didn't Hines Ward play his entire career without an ACL?

With most teams, you'd know right away. The Pats are so secretive that we're stuck speculating if a guy is hurt or not. Plenty of teams come out and say that a guy isn't 100%, but will play anyway. The Pats just let it happen.

That's not true. I tore my ACL 10yrs ago, and never got it fixed. I'm not in as good of shape as an NFL player, and I've managed to play 3 seasons of hockey with it. It makes things harder, but you can still live a normal life. A knee brace can stabilize things enough to play, and workout, as long as you can live with the pain.

It takes some serious guts to play a whole season like that.

Chuck Norris wishes he had Mankins threshold for pain.

Seriously, I will never complain about my bad knee again.

Suprised he could anchor at all in pass pro. Gotta be pretty painful. They said he completely tore it and actually tore his MCL on a later date. One tough dude.
