Lions P Kasey Redfern suffered a torn ACL and MCL, as well as a partial tear of his patellar tendon. Tough injury, as he will require surgery for his ACL and patellar tendon. In light of the fact that his patellar tendon is torn they will likely have to use a hamstring graft instead of the patellar tendon for ACL reconstruction. RTP 12-15 months is reasonable especially since he’s a punter. Below watch our 3D animation on ACL reconstruction using hamstring:
