Youth Sports Post: Isaiah On the DL

Well, Isaiah's left knee was killing him this morning after last night's game, so we took him to the doctor. The concern is a strained or torn ACL (Anterior cruciate ligament) and/or MCL (Medial collateral ligament). 

The prescription is to immobilize the knee for a week, no practices or games, and see if it improves. If it doesn't, then an MRI and further steps. So poor Isaiah is hobbling around on crutches now. He's not happy about it, but we are. Age fourteen is too early to mess around with permanent knee damage. 

My guess is that this was when it happened. Isaiah was returning a punt. That's his left leg stuck out there just before that big guy came in and hyperextended it.

He went ahead and played the rest of the game. I don't think he could have done that with a tear, so we're hoping it's a strain. Counting on it.

Meanwhile, Jeremiah plays on. That's him with the ball. So... you may still see a few Youth Sports posts now and then.
