Hogue Hobbled

Doug Hogue went down with a knee injury during the spring game and almost immediately the word came forth that it was no big deal.  That Hogue missed the remainder of the game was merely a precaution and there's not much more to it.

Except, you know, surgery to repair knee damage.  Just that.

According to a release from the SU athletics department, Hogue had an MRI done April 19, which showed a medial meniscal tear and medial collateral ligament sprain.

Team physician Dr. Irving Raphael operated on Hogue's knee April 26. The release stated that the surgery went well. There was not a prognosis given for Hogue's return. Raphael was unavailable for comment Thursday morning.

Hogue is coming off a season in which he was 3rd on the team in tackles (72), led the Big East with 16.5 tackles for losses and finished second in the conference in sacks (9.5).

I've said it before and I'll say it again.   Jesus hates Syracuse football.

Update: Wikipedia tells me that those who have surgery to repair a meniscus tear "return to their normal activities on average after a few weeks." So that's good.
