Starting to think we're not gonna get that Bills/Vikings redemption bowl match-up in the Owl this season.

Exploratory surgery? ACL tears can be found with an MRI. They were doing something else.

Injuries are really ruining my enjoyment of this sport.  There's not much you can do about it though.

When I dislocated my knee they did surgery rather than an MRI.  The NFL wouldn't be that cheap though.

Tearing the ACL, presumably.

I assume implanting a microchip when they saw the vaccine-based chip didn't take

The MRI showed a meniscus tear - they were probably is there cleaning it out and saw an ACL tear.  The torn meniscus may have obscured the ACL on the MRI.

It's probably not a complete tear, and likely a partial. Von expressed after it happened that he thought he'd be back in 2 weeks.

Meh. Von is a pass rusher, not the entire defense, and he only played 30-50% of snaps anyway.

That makes more sense than exploratory surgery.

I'm sure MRI technology has advanced a lot, but after falling ass over elbows down a rocky bluff about 150 feet, I had an MRI on my shoulder about 15 years ago that didn't show anything. But I still had pain, range of motion issues, weakness in the shoulder, even after physical therapy and cortisone shots - they thought it was a rotator cuff injury that PT would help.
Then the doctor did some finagling and manipulating of my arm and shoulder, thinking maybe he missed something, and succeeded in dislocating (and subsequently relocating) my shoulder. We decided that surgery would be the best next step.
They were flying a bit blind, since the MRI showed nothing - blind to the extent that they went into my shoulder from the front, and saw the damage, and had to go in from the back of my shoulder to fix the damage. The damage? Nearly 25% of my labrum was separated from the bone, and there was a tear a few millimeters long. Required them scraping the bone, then 3 'suture screws' to reattach it to the bone, a couple sutures for the tear, and he put a few in my rotator cuff to tighten it.
At my Boobies-op follow up, he said he thinks the reason it wasn't seen on the MRI was because the MRI 'slices' were something like 1 centimeter apart (if i recall right), and looking at the MRI after seeing the inside of my shoulder, the separation and tear looked like they were in between 'slices'. In retrospect, he said he probably should have ordered a second MRI, but the end result would have been the same - surgery - but it would have been a shorter surgery since they would know where the damage was, and I'd have one less scar.

/csb? Nah

I had a meniscus tear cleaned up, but prior to going under for the surgery I had to sign a waiver saying that I am giving them permission to repair any other damage they find while my knee was opened up that may have not shown in the MRI - they told me the risk was they find a torn ACL along with the torn cartilage, the difference being a 6-12 month recovery vs a 4-6 week recover.  With my wedding only 3 months away at the time we were a bit worried...

(Side note, ended up with a blood clot from the surgery, with 6 months of blood thinners and no drinking, which with the wedding coming up may have been worse than being on the mend from an ACL repair...)

Damn, I just replied with the same thing.... I should've read the rest of the comments first...

I had a torn meniscus a few years ago. During the procedure to fix that, they discovered I had two stress fractures in the back of my knee that didn't show up on any of the MRIs or X-rays.

/they call it "medical practice" for a reason

Well ....... shiat.
I can be thankful that it didn't also change 'labrum' to 'labia', or that I didn't typo or get auto corrected to 'labia' ...

Genuinely caused a tear or two from laughing so hard at this response.

MRIs are exceedingly good at detecting even the most minor grade tear in soft tissue.

I know because I've had both wrists and my left elbow MRI'd this quarter, finding old traumatic injuries to the soft tissue in my elbow, and extensive tearing in both my wrists.

That's why I said exploratory surgery is nonsensical. They don't just go in randomly looking for shiat. As a previous farker posted, MRI showed a meniscus tear, and they found the ACL was hosed when they went in.

That's a failure of the radiologist doing the exam of the images

I have my doubts that the Vikings will make it past a good team to go anywhere in the playoffs. I'm a home fan, but that means that I have seen all of their games. On the plus side, they are winning the close games this year, instead of finding new ways to lose those games. They still give up way too many points in the last 2 minutes of the halves. And last week, they gave up almost 500 yards to the Jets. Dallas and Philadelphia cut them to ribbons.

Good, he just wanted to be the first NFL player to play and win a super bowl with three different teams. He didn't give a fark about the team or their fans. He just wanted to ride their coattails for his own personal glory.

I don't think he is jealous of anyone, probably  just supremely disappointed that karma came and put him in his rightful place.

Considering that the Bills got Miller and paid him all that money for basically one and only one reason - getting pressure on Patrick Mahomes and helping them finally get past KC in the playoffs.

So much for that plan.
