This the best damn hospital
in Texas. The very best. My son, Andrew, played for Midland,
and ended up back East at Penn. Oh, he playin’ with,
uh, Joe Paterno.University of Pennsylvania.
Just let it relax.
You have any pain?Not at all.
Does this hurt? Nope.
None of that hurts? Nope.
Okay. Go ahead and sit up and
just let your legs hang over the side. In fact, why don’t you
go ahead and get dressed
and let me look at the scan. I-I’m sorry.
You’reJames’ dad? No, I’m his uncle.
Come over and let me–
let me look at the scan with you.Uh, this is the scan
wejust did today ofhis knee…and this is looking right
through the middle of the knee. What we’re looking at
right through here is– is the A.C.L., and what this shows is that
he’s had a fairly significant,
fairly serious injury. James, let me show you.
Right through here
is where the injury is, and it looks like you’ve had
a pretty serious injury
to that part of your knee. Significant enough that–
that I have concerns about
what you can do from here on. So when can I suit up? Well, let me just say with how
your knee felt when I examined it
and what I see on the scan–With– with the–
the things that you do well–The reason that you’re great
is that you can run and cut
and hammer people… and you don’t hesitate
because you’ve got a solid knee.When you don’t have this ligament,
you can’t do that,
so it’s really out of the question.What? No, no, no. That’s–
That’s not what Dr. Spencer said. He said three weeks.
Three weeks is up,
and I’m ready to play. I understand. I understand,
but again, when I– Based on what I see
when I feel your knee, examine
your knee– What I see here– [ Stammers ]
You– You really can’t play
with this kind of knee. What are you talkin’
about, I can’t play?
I’m gonna play. I’m ready to play.
My team needs me.
