Can't get over how much weight he's added in less than a year...

To be recovering from blowing his knee out a second time and then to add between 20-25 lbs is just...wow...

No, JP. That was the first time he's injured that knee. Both of the others were on he other.

Edit: Letting all know I was wrong on this. Bad info months back. I apologize.

Found it. Both are wrong. I can't do basic arithmetic - it was two, plus this one. Thought I had just read about this...

"...Kikaha appreciates why many would wonder if he can regain peak form following a third left anterior cruciate ligament tear since college, so he doesn't take offense to the skepticism surrounding his comeback..."

Gotta admit... I thought his career was over. Three ACL surgeries on the same knee?! Forget it. I don't know if he'll hold up going forward but the fact that he's made it back to this point is just incredible. The guy is really making a run at being a starter.

I just hope his luck is more of Thomas Davis and not D Ellerbe.

I had no doubt about his ability. I just hope he holds up. If he does he will be very good.

Um no. Do your research like you so quickly tell everyone else.

You're right. Not sure where I had read it was the other knee in college.
