McDonald Has ACL Surgery

A while back, we read an article about Gale Sayers after a doctor looked at his knee.  Apparently the surgeries he had during his brilliant career were by modern standards, well, medieval.  The good doctor said that it was amazing that Sayers was even able to jog and that he could was a considerable expression of will.

Things have come a long way since then.  We were sorry to hear that Leslie McDonald blew his ACL out earlier this summer.  He seems like a decent sort of guy and you hate to see anyone get hurt.

He had surgery Wednesday and with modern techniques and care, his rehab is likely to be quick and comprehensive. We hope he's back in action before too long.
