I consider myself damn lucky, genetically. Been playing competitive sports-- ~40 years of weekly football and decades of mountaineering and skiing... aside from some minor arthritis discomfort, at age 54 the docs always comment that my knee ligament stability is unusually strong. When I think of all the twists/low hits/close calls I've had... :shock:


Lucky you. I feel lucky that I kept playing basketball, volleyball and softball until about age 44, that's a lot of pounding on the knees and hips, can't do any sports anymore other than biking or golf, after dislocating an ankle, a hip replacement and no cartilage in one knee, I'm lucky a did play sports that long.And I hadn't played real football since high school and last played flag football at around 23. I would of kept going forever if the ankle didn't blow out one night. But it was fun while it lasted.

Wish I knew more. I saw the interview earlier and was asked if he had it scoped and if that is what he meant by getting it checked out. His reply was you’ll have to go ask Mike Tomlin that one.

Hope it’s nothing serious for the kid.

I’m currently on day 3 of being in the hospital with both knees fully replaced. I’ll be 45 next month.

Take care of yourselves gentlemen.



Holy shit Thrill. Get well man.

I've had 3 ACLs total and I'm 43. Probably a replacement candidate long term as well.



I’m Not a Dr but when I had my 5 knee surgeries back in high school, my sports trainer said mid 40’s you’ll be looking at full knee replacements. Boy, did she nail it. Not sure how long ago your ACL’s we’re but that with any kind of meniscus loss is the road to replacements.

Swiss has the right idea with pushing it out and using up better insurance before retirement . My dad had one done, rehabbed back to work then did the other one. Retired about a month after that second knee was done with rehab.

Football blew some meniscus and an ACL as a freshman in HS.

The rest of mine were all wrestling.
