huh? He was 86% time on ground today. That's actually a lot, for him, for a mid, and in general.Seem to be only able to play half a game at this point. He is far from our biggest problem but we really miss his pressure around the ball.
Will giving him a month off now help him or is it a case of them hoping he can get through the season as is and then have a surgery or whatever?
I meant he goes missing from games. I dont feel he is having the 4 qtr impact he did last year and obviously being kept up forward for the majority of the game because he isnt 100% fit.huh? He was 86% time on ground today. That's actually a lot, for him, for a mid, and in general.
https://www.essendonfc.com.au/news/2019-05-14/dons-set-for-forward-boost2018 Crichton Medal winner Devon Smith is also under an injury cloud following knee discomfort against the Swans and Crow said a specialist appointment will shed more light on the issue.
“During the Sydney game, Devon had three sharp episodes in his knee in a different spot to what he’d had over the last couple of years with his knee having a PCL deficiency, which means the PCL isn’t present.
“He’s got a new lesion within the knee, so he will be off for a specialist opinion this week and we’ll be able to update further once we’ve got more direction from the specialist.”
I'm guessing that's the existing issue with his knee that he's had all along. I'm curious if it's been ruptured and removed at some point or if he was just born without it... Not sure if that's a thing with PCLs but there are other tendons that some people have and some don't."A PCL deficiency, which means the PCL isn't present"
There must be some in-joke with the ridiculousness of these reports.
Strong quads, other muscles and ligamentsWtf?? A PCL is bigger and stronger than an ACL, how does the two bones stay in place!
