Found August 23, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
When Miami Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller went down with his grisly knee injury, you could almost immediately tell that it would be significant. While the ailment was basically a worst-case scenario for Keller and the Dolphins, there was some good news to be had in a report yesterday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that, while Keller tore the ACL, PCL and MCL in his knee, he didn’t suffer any nerve or cartilage damage. ThoughDustin Keller tore ACL, PCL and MCL, he did not suffer nerve nor cartilage damage in his knee. Can try to mount comeback. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 22, 2013 In the absence of nerve and cartilage damage, Schefter notes that Keller can now attempt a comeback to the NFL. The lack of nerve and cartilage damage doesn’t guarantee Keller will be able to return to his previous form, if at all, but it will make the process a lot more doable and increase his chances overall. Nerve damage is a major concern, because there isn’t much in the way of treatment for that. Likewise, tendons and ligaments can be replaced, but the process of repairing cartilage damage tends to be a different story. Even with the good news, the road ahead of Keller is still to be determined. The tight end signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins this offseason, so he’ll be a free agent after the 2013 campaign. It’s unclear if he’ll be ready to return next season. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
