    Typically, you re-injure by pushing too hard. Was it that he was pushing harder than advised, or were trainers and coaches allowing him to go harder than he should have? Of course, it could be neither of those scenarios, but I’d bet one of them is what happened. It would illustrate just how hard UGA football is pushing this year.

    Simple rules should apply. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4912389/

    "For every one month delay in return to sport, the reinjury rate was reduced by 51 % (Table 3). In patients who returned between 9 and 23 months after surgery, time to return was not significantly associated with knee reinjury. Patients who participated in level I sports earlier than nine months after surgery sustained 39.5 % reinjuries (15 of 38), compared to 19.4 % knee reinjuries (7 of 36) in those who returned to level I sports later than nine months after surgery."

    9 months. It's the bare minimum! White started drills before 9 months = contralateral (the more common consequential injury p return to sport from ACL repair) injury. Dominick's surgery was in mid December. I cannot get an exact date but his injury was Dec 7 or 8th and it takes a week to 2 weeks for swelling to subside enough to perform surgery. Let's say Dec 20th. If it was 9 months, it was 9 months by a day. More recent research looking over multiple studies suggests a significantly longer time frame before return to sport.

    "Therefore, delaying a return to high level activity for high-risk athletes until two years after ACLR will restore knee joint homeostasis and significantly reduce the risk of subsequent injury."

    What's the rush really? Just like Zamir 2 years ago, DB wasn't going to be up to speed this season after a Dec 8th, 2019 injury even if he avoided reinjury.
