So basically he has had a set back... can't imagine someone as determined as Alex giving up on the year given all talk was "he wants to play and believes he will play"
He met with his surgeons earlier this week, probably as simple as they advised against it and thought there was still a decent chance of re-injury this early.
Props to him for trying. If anything, all this work he put in now means that when he returns next year he should be close to as good as new.When all the posters who had undergone knee reconstructions on here were saying the same thing about the timing and the graft, it became obvious that bringing Rance back this season would not be sensible. Well done to all those people for talking good sense into us. And well done to Rance and Richmond and the medical people involved for making a sound decision.
I’m gonna say it’s more likely his recovery wasn’t coming along quite fast enough if he wanted to make a miracle return
