    Austin Jackson hurt knee; Jason Coats recalled

    Post by MGJOHNSON on Fri Jun 10, 2016 4:03 pm

    From Rotoworld.com:


    "White Sox placed OF Austin Jackson on the 15-day disabled list with a medial meniscus tear in his right knee. Jackson had been dealing with a bout of turf toe at the end of May and early June, but this injury is separate from that. As of this posting, there is no timetable for his return. Prior to the injury, the 29-year-old outfielder was hitting .254/.318/.343 with no home runs and 18 RBI across 203 at-bats. J.B. Schuck, Tyler Saladino and Jason Coats (whom the White Sox called up on Friday) figure to split at-bats in the outfield as the Sox try to make up for Jackson's absence."


    This sounds like something that's going to take several weeks to heal.

    A medial meniscus tear doesn't heal.  You either have it repaired or remove the torn piece.  It's an easy surgery to remove it.  Jackson would likely be back to full strength after a couple of weeks.

    Thanks, Rob.  That's good to know.  I guess that it sounds a lot worse than it is.

    I had two of them.  Each one eventually became bone on bone and I have two full replacements.  But it took 30 years or so until I could not take it any longer.  If Jackson no longer makes the big bucks, he might be better off hanging it up and enjoying life.

    Sounds like a movie Kark would accuse Rob of watching.

    I think Hampton had them constantly.  Little meniscus tears and little cartilage tears.  He'd have them removed and be back on the field a week later.  I had a tear in each knee, and had it removed.  Back playing full speed basketball about ten days later, the day after stitches came out.
