For all the ongoing angst involving concussion, the injury is almost always far less debilitating than a torn ACL in the knee.
Multiple conversations with high school, college and pro sports certified athletic trainers over the last three weeks has come up with one revelation: no one likes the doctor.
Contrary to what the talking heads on ESPN said over the weekend, Derrick Rose did not suffer another torn “ligament” or a torn “medical” meniscus.
