Turns out it was the same knee that was damaged in college. Not good.

It's a loss, but it's not the end all, hurry back Kikaha. Long way to go to find a replacement.

Re: Kikaha - torn ACL

I can see the Saints possibly targeting someone after all of the final cuts have been made through out the league later this summer.

Often times good players are cut not because they are devoid of talent & ability but because of a teams overall depth at the position. I'm certain Sean/Allen will target one of those players.

Re: Kikaha - torn ACL

Saints coach Sean Payton believes Hau'oli Kikaha's third torn left ACL is "not necessarily" career ending.

Going on 24, Kikaha tore his left ACL twice in college. In somewhat confusing reasoning for his optimism, Payton said the ACL could be repaired "as if it were the first ACL, not the third." Kikaha is holding off on surgery, but it's inevitable. It's not unheard of to return from three ACL tears, but the odds are sadly against the 2015 second-rounder.

Talk to some of my ortho friends from my Tulane Univ. Hospital days and it's not optimistic with regards to his career...

...am genuinely heart-broken for Hau'oli right now...

Yeah, I agree JP. It's his third one.
