Cardinals QB Kyler Murray Tears ACL in non-contact Injury
As an example of why GO Sleeves are taking on the sport of football, in December 2022, Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray suffered a season-ending ACL injury. Murray went down during a third-down scramble of the Cardinals’ 27-13 loss to the New England Patriots. He ran for three yards, then he went down when his left knee buckled. It was a non-contact injury.
Each year, approximately 250,000 people tear their ACL, and is considered the most common type of knee ligament tear. It is also one of the most serious, requiring surgery to return to sports. According to the National Library of Medicine, “Approximately 70% of all ACL tears occur with a non-contact, suggesting that a significant number of these tears might be avoided by intervening with prevention programs.” There is speculation that Murray’s quick return from hamstring injury contributed to Kyler Murray’s torn ACL.
