    NFL star running back Adrian Peterson came back from a torn ACL after 10 months to win the rushing title(second most yards all time) in 2012. But Peterson's doctors said that his early comeback was almost unheard of from such an injury.

    Is it always 100%; not so sure.

    Just wondering...do you think D. Allen is as good as he would have been had he not been injured? I think he is not.

    In the 400m the difference between 1st and say 5th could be less than 1/2 second...sure he would be considered competitive but, like user4 says, being competitive is not necessarily being where you would be had the injury never occurred.

    Van Niekerk picked up medial and lateral tears of the meniscus, as well as a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in a celebrity tag rugby match in a curtain-raiser to last month’s Rugby Championship Test between the Springboks and the All Blacks at Newlands .



    I assume it was a paid appearance and not a pick-up game

    Pretty sure this case is generally regarded as an example of the effectiveness of HGH and roids by those who have any knowledge of the human body and and PEDs. No one comes back that quickly.

    I think his knee is fully recovered, but he lost a lot of valuable developmental time and experience, so no, he's not as good as he would have been, now, or probably ever.

    That exactly describes the injury to my right knee (26 years ago).

    He's going to have to be very careful with that knee from now on. The ACL is one thing; those meniscus tears (and presumed resulting removal of material) are what can play havoc with the knee's natural pivoting action.
