It depends on the severity of it, our resident Warpath Doctor (we just hired him) will officially let us know shortly

I'm reading about it and it says that if surgery is required you have to wear a brace for 6 weeks and then rehab.

Which would mean that JC is done till 08.

We're going to have to wait and see really how much associated ligament/tendon damage their is with this injury. I'll assume for now that it is a patellar tendon rupture with dislocation. Normally patients need about 6 months with good physical therapy. Being an athlete--Campbell may heal a bit faster. Let's wait until they do the MRI in a few days...

If this is a tear, it's the same injury that sent Mike Espy to the IR back in the preseason.

I'm a big advocate of linemen and QBs wearing knee braces 100% of the time. I know they hinder mobility, but so do crutches.

I'm no doctor, but it seems pretty obvious to me that Campbell is done for the season, no doubt about it. The question isn't if he'll come back for 2007, but will he be 100% come 2008.

Even if the injury is on the severe side--I think JC should be ready for 2008.

Crap, if he is done, so is any hope of the playoffs, however remote that was. Almost think we ought to tank on purpose to get the better draft pick. Sounds crappy, but we need an immediate impact player on the D now.

Good to hear. This season is done, IMO. May as well get everyone healed up and ready for next year.

6 months???????? I thought this was a 4-6 week injury. Jeez. That sucks. I think the QB's should wear a brace on the plant leg. It seems like most of the qb injuries to the knees come on the plant leg.

A dislocation alone will be 1-2 months. However, if there is tendon or ligament injury--which we will not know until after the MRI--the recovery could be 6 months.

All depends on the degree of the tendon damage.

I am convinced there is a black cloud over this team.
