Although a posterior cruciate ligament injury generally causes less pain, disability and knee instability than does an ACL tear, it can still sideline you for several weeks or months.

Symptoms
Signs and symptoms of a PCL injury can include:

Pain. Mild to moderate pain in the knee can cause a slight limp or difficulty walking.
Swelling. Knee swelling occurs rapidly, within hours of the injury.
Instability. Your knee might feel loose, as if it's going to give way.
If there are no associated injuries to other parts of your knee, the signs and symptoms of a posterior cruciate ligament injury can be so mild that you might not notice that anything's wrong. Over time, the pain might worsen and your knee might feel more unstable. If other parts of your knee have also been injured, your signs and symptoms will likely be more severe.

Hopefully his injury is a strain and not a tear. Either way, I hope he places health above passion. Solid young man

Sounds like a bit of positive news. Hopefully he can come back from this as we know he wants to play - just for his sake. As others have said, don't rush it. Hopefully it is just a strain. At the end of the day, the game this coming weekend is effectively meaningless. Hope he can get healed up and see what he can do. Until then, its time for Will to step up and get it done.

Good to hear. I think Howard will be more up to the challenge this week, but Nevada is a good team.
