Turns out that LT’s 2nd degree MCL sprain was a serious injury.
From Chris Mortensen at ESPN;
“San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson was diagnosed Tuesday with a second degree knee sprain of the medial collateral ligament that will require at least six more weeks to heal, according to his agent, Tom Condon.”
“The doctor said this is the type of injury that would seriously hamper LaDainian’s ability to cut or push off the leg,” Condon said. “His quadriceps muscle had already atrophied one inch. He absolutely can’t play in the Pro Bowl and there shouldn’t be any question as to why he couldn’t go when [the Chargers] played New England.”
LT will miss the Pro Bowl. Willis McGahee will be his replacement.
