[NFL] Simmons tears ACL, out for year

Recommended Posts


The resurrection of the Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive line suffered a serious setback Thursday when the team learned that starting right guard Kendall Simmons will miss the entire 2004 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

A third-year veteran and the Steelers' first-round choice in the 2002 draft, Simmons suffered the injury during practice Wednesday, but team officials were convinced it was little more than a sprain. An MRI exam revealed the more serious tear, however, and Simmons will undergo season-ending surgery when swelling in the knee subsides.


there have been so many season ending injuries this year... wtf.

sucks for them.

i say cut the preseason to 2 games, make the regular season 18.. those first 2 games can be useful in letting a new QB learn the offense and such
