    Keivonnis Davis may not play again, not Malik.

    The knee injury could've been as bad as some think. I remember reading an article last year about Dennis Smith Jr being among the 20% who have an extra ligament in their knee. He was dunking 2 weeks after his ACL. Adrian Peterson was mentioned in that group and why he was able to come back so quickly.

    I also recently read about European Doctors discovering the anterolateral ligament in the knee a few years ago. They think damage to that ligament in knee injuries are partly the cause of why people complain about instability and when fixed with the ACL it will strengthen and quicken the recovery time.

    I am not a doctor or in the medical field or know what was wrong with Davis' knee but it is possible Malik Davis fit in those above categories and would be why he recovered so fast. Then again it could've been a meniscus tear.

    I agree.... the Real Push is going to be next year. Imagine a fully healthy Malik, and Sanders (fingers crossed) as our 1-2 starting off the season in Orlando.....

    Lemons has looked fairly explosive too

    I think people forget that Lemons was the #1'ranked back in the state until he had his personal problems.

    Think he means Kevonnis Davis but I would like to know why, size or something else?

    It will be a real management test for the staff to take this stable of RBs and call the plays that give to each their best chance to succeed and the pecking order may not be clear to us until mid season. I hope our OL can get the job done. But there are always swing passes, sweeps and some option I suppose.
