True... but... AP came back in 7 months.
Of course, Lattimore's knee was more severe.
Then again, it was more severe, because it was more than one ligament, but all of the ligaments should heal at the same rate (I think). Ergo, maybe he is indeed ready by October.
Anyway, I understand your point: if they do draft Lattimore, then "someone" needs to be brought in to start for the first half of the season (or possibly the entire season).
