Pennington tears ACL, career in doubt

QB Chad Pennington tore his ACL in a recent pickup basketball, and noted surgeon Dr. James Andrew will repair it April 7, according to Creative Artists, Pennington's representation agency. It's unclear which knee Pennington injured.

Now, you have to wonder if Pennington will return to the NFL at all. He’ll be 35 by the time next season starts, he’s only played four games the past two seasons and he’s coming off a potentially career-threatening shoulder injury (he’s now had four shoulder surgeries).

He’s a veteran presence in any locker room, and he’s well-liked and well-respected throughout the league. But you also have to question how much he has left to offer.

So, here’s hoping Pennington is a quick healer – so, if nothing else, he can get back to dancing like a maniac.

Breaking news! Dateline Cincinnati... Mike Brown offers 3 year deal to Chad Pennington. The much maligned owner says “he is just the kind of guy he can count on to build a team around.”

Career in doubt? There has never been a time when there wasn't doubt in his career, or lack thereof. It isn't like this is going to have any impact on anyone except those in the Pennington household. Nice guy. Very likeable. Pennington was a slow starter. His progression took longer than normal because the gap between college and pro was too wide coming from the MAC, with speed challenged defensive backs. Smart guy. Probably make a good coach. But let's get real here. This isn't shattering news that's going to send tremors anywhere.
