The scary part about Marcus Lattimore is that it is now two seasons in a row where he suffered season ending knee injuries. The second knee injury that he went through this past season for the South Carolina Gamecocks was so bad that when it happened players from both teams joined in prayer on the field.
The second knee injury he went through tore 3 out of the 4 ligaments in his knee and is compared to the injury that Willis McGahee suffered while he was playing his final season at Miami. It was especially devastating considering how well he had been playing after his first knee injury ended his sophmore year.
The surgeon that did the surgery is named Dr. Jeff Guy and has proclaimed that Lattimore suffered no cartilage damage to his knee from the injury and has said that he is right where he needs to be in the rehab process to avoid any further surgeries.
Marcus finished his career with some pretty dang impressive numbers for being limited by injuries. For playing only three seasons and having two of those seasons cut short he still finished with 2,677 rushing yards and 38 touchdowns.
South Carolina's Marcus Lattimore should draw Raiders interest
