�It�s hurt. I heard a distinct pop. I don�t think it�s my ACL, �cause
when I did it before it sounded like my knee exploded. It sounded like
the whole stadium could hear it pop. While I did here it pop [Tuesday]
it wasn�t the same pop. That�s something you don�t forget.
�But I�ve got a very distinct pain on the lower left side of my knee.
Just got to wait for the MRI.�
On what doctor said after checking him out Tuesday, what injury might be
�He didn�t really say anything. He seems to think that I have more give
on my ACL on my left knee than I do on my right knee. But he hasn�t
tested my knee over the last 16 years. That�s why I want to wait to get
home, I�m sure Dr. [Marvin] Royster, who performed my surgery and
everything, will be at the stadium tomorrow night when we get home, and
then I�ll probably get an MRI on Thursday.�
On what trainer Jeff Porter said after examining him on field and in
�He gave me all the ACL tests, and I told him, �I don�t think it�s the
ACL. [But] something�s not right.� He told me out on the field, your ACL
�When I did it the first time, if I locked out my knee and I had weight
on it, the top half of my leg would roll over the bottom half. And
that�s not happening [this time]. I�m pretty confident it�s not the ACL.
There might be a slight tear, but it�s not completely torn.�
�I have a lot of pain in the lower left side of my knee. I don�t know
what that means. We�ve just got to basically wait for the MRI to come
back, and hopefully that will tell us. Hopefully it�s just a sprain. I
mean, there are some good signs. It�s not blowing up the way my knee did
the first time I did it [in 1994]. There�s little if any fluid in it
right now, so hopefully that will be the case tomorrow morning when I
get up. We�ll just have to wait and see.�
On waiting until team gets home to have the MRI
�Like I said, the doctors here haven�t checked my knee for 16 years,
like Dr. Royster back in Atlanta has. I�d feel a lot more comfortable
having him check me out, get the MRI, have him look at the MRI pictures
and be able to tell me why I have pain in the lower left [part of the knee].
�On the play, I planted, and when I jumped it popped. It wasn�t when I
landed, it was when I jumped. It�s a different feeling than the first
time when I blew my ACL.�
