"Not once but twice!" Cool-cat Mike Cortez is once again sidelined because of no less than ACL injury on his right knee. He'll be out for six months. Recall that he suffered the same injury on his left knee while with Alaska Milk back in 2006.
I saw it when Cortez went down to the floor holding his knee. I thought it wasn't that bad since he was able to stand-up and walk. This is really a bad news for the fans of Mike Cortez. His being injury-prone was a big issue when he was shipped to SMB.
ACL or anterior cruciate ligament injury is extreme stretching or tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee. A tear may be partial or complete.
ACL may occur from coming to a quick stop with a directional change while running, pivoting, landing, or overextending the joint in either direction
