Would Maason Smith had gotten injured on grass?

I saw OBJ making the argument of the danger of turf fields. Got me thinking that the turf on the dome had to have an effect on Mason’s non contact injury.

Maybe another reason to avoid these neutral site games in domed environments.

Probably not on a chewable.

Blew my ACL on a grass field in HS.

So of course he could have.

It was a really freak thing. All he did was jump and celebrate. Doubt grass/turf would matter. I could see if he his cleat got caught or something, but it was a freakish injury. Praying for a 100% recovery.

Nobody knows man. People tear their ACL's on grass all the time as well.

Wouldn’t it have gone at some point anyway? It wasn’t really anything catastrophic he did to the knee so it seems like it would have tore at some point regardless

A baw that size was going to have that injury eventually.

I wouldn’t be shocked if that ligament was already partially torn before the celebration and that just finished it off

There is a lot involved in the mechanism of injury for tearing an ACL in non-contact situations. The science behind the modern turf shoe "cleat" is all designed to maintain as much surface contact with the turf until the last possible second of the next movement. So if a player plants his leg into the turf its gonna stay there until they lift their leg up and out.

So its not the turf but the shoe as well.

As much as I love these neutral site games are fading out for LSU here soon, this is not one of the reasons I am behind it. Injuries can happen anywhere, ask Myles Brennan

No idea, but if I were an ortho I’d be trying to come up with some kind of minimally-invasive prophylactic procedure where the ligament can be strengthened so it doesn’t tear at all.

The doc who comes up with this for the ACL and PCL is going to be a billionaire.

I was thinking about this too. Develop some laparoscopic procedure where they replace your acl with a new acl made from a medical grade rubber.

yes, because the turf did not injure him. The jumping up in the air celebration injured him.

but that's most likely what happened, he jumped and prob a little forwards so his feet had to push back a little and his cleat prob did catch in the turf, on grass its a lot less forgiving and he might've just took a chunk of grass out of the ground but turf won't budge

The weight is what makes injury’s for lineman so frequently!

The guy landed slightly off balance. That's all there was too it. Turf, grass, wood floor, sand - none of that would have made a difference.

They used to have a flag football game at the Pro Bowl. It was discontinued after a guy completely wrecked his knee on the beach.

It was simply a freak accident - like Brennan breaking his arm doing something he's probably done dozens of times before.

I feel like those knee braces should be just as much to blame.

There are video compilations out there with literally a 100 guys getting hurt “celebrating”. You would think they’d figure out that it isn’t worth the risk. I cringe every time I see a lineman lift a WR or RB in the air after a TD. Linemen jumping up in the air celebrating a big play seems just as stupid. As a coach, I’d beg my guys to play smart and try to avoid the silly, self-inflicted, injuries.
