Two-time Comeback Player of the Year and current free agent Chad Pennington went and did something wholly original this week: he injured his leg instead of injuring his arm. To be exact, Pennington tore his ACL while playing in a pickup basketball game. Add this to his 2003 fractured hand, his 2005 torn rotator cuff, his 2009 shoulder injury, his 2010 dislocated shoulder and torn capsule, and probably that time he fell off his bike and scraped his elbow in the third grade. I'm sure I'm even missing a few there. In any case, the knees were feeling neglected.
Pennington will have surgery on April 7, and perhaps, if he is as insane as he seems, will still attempt to return to play with the Dolphins next year.
