What's next after an ACL injury?

Seattle Sounders and United States men's national team winger Jordan Morris was ruled out for the season with a "significant" anterior cruciate ligament injury while on loan to a team in Wales. It's his second ACL injury.

This is a common injury, especially in soccer, basketball, and football, as the ACL is a structure that helps stabilize lateral motions of the knee. Recovery time typically is six to nine months, says Dr. Albert Gee, an orthopedic surgeon at UW Medicine. He discusses the recovery process in the video soundbites below.
