Florida Gators safety Dorian Munroe has knee surgery

GAINESVILLE -- University of Florida redshirt senior Dorian Munroe recently had minor surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee, the same knee that underwent surgery to rebuild his anterior-cruciate ligament last year. Florida coach Urban Meyer said on Monday that Munroe's surgery repaired damaged knee cartilage.

Munroe, a Miami native, was a projected starter last season before tearing his ACL during fall training camp. This latest setback will sideline Munroe four to five weeks, according to a university spokesman. Munroe is a back-up strong safety behind Ahmad Black.

Did you see the story about NFL teams' concerns with the repair of CI's knee? Seems like some teams thought the repair was faulty in some way. Any chance the same faulty repair affected Munroe? Is there any buzz about the UF team doctor?

The only buzz around UF I've heard about this is that C.I.'s reconstructed ACL "didn't hold," whatever that means. I do know that the UF team doctor who performed the operation is considered a top-flight orthopedic surgeon.

Munroe's second injury and C.I.'s second injury are not similar. Munroe's second surgery was to repair damaged cartilage, according to UF.

Here's a link to a story about concerns regarding C.I.'s first reconstructed ACL.

Sounds reasonable to me. Thanks.
