Just 30 minutes into a new season CB Brian Witherspoon was carted off the field with what appears to be an ACL injury. Witherspoon, who was returning to football after tearing his ACL last year,  was performing individual drills and was said to be playing very well when he went down with an injury to his surgically repaired knee.

Witherspoon was very excited about making a comeback to football after a year out. He seemed to be a lock to make the 53 man roster. Dominic Hixon who himself is returning after 2 ACL injuries called it “devastating”

With what appears to be another devastating injury on a DB on only the first day of OTA’s I hope there is not a repeat of last year. That could make for a very long year after such a great run to a title. The trainers have their work cut out for them.
