Day's MRI shows ACL tear
North Little Rock running back Juan Day, an Arkansas commitment, said the doctor has called and confirmed his MRI (magnetic resonance imaging scan) shows an ACL tear. He said he'll visit the doctor today at one to schedule a date for surgery.
About 20 years ago the injury was a major setback for an athlete’s ability to perform at a high level but now that’s not the case with the advancements in surgical techniques.
Day, who's rated a 4-star prospect by national recruiting analyst Tom Lemming of CBS Sports Network, rushed 115 times for 930 yards and 13 touchdowns in nine games as a junior.
Day will have surgery on Oct. 10.
