Welp, this sucks. My favorite defender goes down and can't stay healthy.. hopefully we can re-sign him cheap. Not sure he will be a Falcon next year. I would hate to see him on another team.

This is the worst injury an athlete can suffer, apart from a very serious concussion/concussions. I rather suffer a broken bone or muscle/ligament tear then get a major head injury.

We lost Wilfork to an Achilles last season. Just horrible for Weatherspoon that he couldn't even make it to TC healthy. He was a great player a couple of years ago, but those might be his best years as a Pro if the last 2 injury hit years are anything to go by.

That really sucks.I've always been a big fan of Spoon. He will be back next year on the cheap for some team.

Well 6 months would put us at possible mid- December return. Theres no way they will keep on the roster for that long even on the PUP list.

Yup, he's done, he can't stay on the field long enough.

As much as it pains me to say, I think that Sean Weatherspoon is now on the downhill slope of his career. He is such a talented linebacker but he just can't seem to stay healthy.

Dude really can't stay healthy. Beason and Thomas Davis both have managed to resurrect injury-plagued careers though. Hopefully he can too

Is a rupture worse than a tear of the ACL?

Rupture vs tear is really not the issue.

The real issue is to what anatomoical structure. Achilles tendon (force transfering structure for leg power...running, jumping, change of direction, etc VS ACL (ligament) that acts as a stabilizer for the knee.

ACL needs to withstand the forces on the knee, but the leg muscles should be able to do the majority of that work. AFter ~12-16 weeks, the reconstructed ACL is able to withstand a pretty signigicant amount of force, but the loss of muslce strength, power, control for the movements necessary for high level sports (FB, BB, soccer, etc) is what takes the time to get athletes back to their sport.

In terms of being career altering? Yes
