Lindsey Vonn suffered another ACL injury yesterday in a training crash. And yes it’s the same right knee, her publicist confirmed to NBC Sports. Lindsey Vonn first blew out the knee in February. Lindsey Vonn re-injured her ACL on a training slope in Colorado. According to her publicist Lewis Kay, she has a mild knee strain, partially torn ACL, minor facial abrasions and scapular contusions. She will rest for a few days before beginning rehab and physical therapy. Yesterday, it was thought that the injury wasn’t that serious. Or at least the information they choose to release was intended to make us believe it wasn’t serious. Now Lindsey Vonn will likely miss the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, which start on February 6th. Hard to believe she has even a remote chance of being healthy in time for that. Lindsey Vonn tore her ACL, MCL and got a tibia fracture at the World Championships in February. She was expected to start racing next week, obviously she’s out for that competition. Paul M. Banks is the owner of The Sports Bank.net, an affiliate of Fox Sports.
