Sad for Victor. Good for the Saints that it happened now.

Until then we have plenty of depth.
I thought recovery time was more like 6-9 months, which would pretty much take him out for the season. Not sure though.

IMO this is definitely a loss, but not a "devastating" blow like some are saying.

It varies from opinion to opinion, depends on severity of damage. I found an article from the University of Arizona that stated 4-6 months which not only makes me feel better but I recon when the NFL pours money into a knee it probably heals faster than when the average persons insurance does.

Actually i am going to revise it to a few weeks

"If you do have an ACL injury, then you’ll be forced off your current training schedule. Depending on the nature of the ACL injury, and the type of treatment you need to undergo, your ACL injury recovery time may range anywhere from a few weeks to up to a year"

ACL Injury Recovery Times and Expectations

As far as I know or can read we do not know if it was a partially torn or complete torn?

Thomas, Reddick, Ruffus and Martin................not to mention Jr and Martez. We'll survive and be just fine. Take a deep breath and think about it. We have a lot of potential in our young players. We'll be alright. No fear.
