Good news for Dustin Keller - No Nerve or Cartilage Damage in His Knee

13

This new information is important because while torn ligaments can be repaired with surgical grafts, damaged nerves can't be treated that way. Earlier reports claimed that Keller had potentially suffered nerve damage. The lack of nerve damage means there is a potential path back to football for Keller. By no means will Keller's rehab be easy, but this news makes it more likely that his career isn't over.
