    Culpepper tears ligaments in right knee
    Associated Press

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper will miss the rest of the season and perhaps part of next season because of a severe injury to his right knee.

    Culpepper sustained damage to the three major ligaments in the knee: the anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate and medial collateral.

    Coach Mike Tice said Monday that Culpepper, who was hurt on the final play of the first quarter in Sunday's 38-13 loss at Carolina, will have surgery in the coming weeks once the swelling subsides.

    Recovery from such injuries can take up to a year. "He has a long rehab ahead," Tice said.

    The Vikings (2-5) will use veteran Brad Johnson as their starter, with Shaun Hill moving up to backup status.

    Culpepper, bothered with a sprained MCL and bursitis in his knee this season, was hit low and from the side by Panthers cornerback Chris Gamble while scrambling for a first down. [/b][/quote]

      When I watched the replay, it didn't look like that bad of a hit.

          What a pussy. Play through the pain.
          On my mind: How can I shut up the singing English graduate student? How many more lossess will KU's basketball team have than its football team? How will the Rams front office screw up this year?

                        Damn - just a meniscus tear short of completing the cycle.
                        Of course you do.

                            Doesn't affect my Fantasy team at all. It sucked from the moment I drafted him.
