Shut up Dex,.Don't talk about it, be about it.

I thought he'd want to come back weaker, what a shocker!

Westy said McDougle had an injury history even in HS!!!!  Idzik for some reason loves players with an injury history, SMH!

This is the second big injury in a row for this kid.  

Here's hoping he makes a full recovery and gets his chance next year to become the player he's capable of becoming for the Jets.

With the way ACL injuries go it will take McDougal 2 years from now to be at full strength.

@UncleJoesJetFarm That reason is because some people foolishly write such players off, enabling you to get some talented players, often at a bargain price.


An ACL is an ACL.  Injury history or no injury history they can happen to any player at any time.

@jaym I'd say "with the way ACL injuries go it could take anything from 9 months to 2 years from now for McDougle to be at full strength".

@Bent @UncleJoesJetFarm I disagree with this for mystical reason I don't want to get into . If an injury keeps you from performing then you probably had some sort of fear to perform. Lets say once was an accident but to repeat......
