Stanford's Bryce Love 'on the path to recovery' from torn ACL ahead of NFL draft

Stanford's Bryce Love 'on the path to recovery' from torn ACL ahead of NFL draft

Former Stanford tailback Bryce Love is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, which he suffered in the Cardinala€™s final regular season game. Love underwent surgery on Dec. 18 with Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham and is expected to make a full recovery.

He will attend the NFL combine in February but will be limited in his participation. Hea€™s still too early in the rehab process to determine when hea€™ll be cleared to return to the field. Love disclosed the injury, which hadna€™t been previously reported, to Yahoo Sports on Friday in an effort to be transparent for the pre-draft process. Love is rehabbing at the Andrews Institute and training at EXOS in Pensacola, Florida.

a€œIa€™m very grateful to Dr. Andrews and his team for making the surgery a seamless process,a€ Love said in a statement to Yahoo Sports. a€œObviously, therea€™s no such thing as an ideal injury, but Ia€™m on the path to recovery, and my goal remains the same a€” getting drafted by an NFL team and being the ultimate professional. Ia€™ll be back better than Ia€™ve ever been.a€

The injury occurred during Stanforda€™s 23-13 victory over Cal to conclude the regular season. Love finished that game with 22 carries for 74 yards and got injured on a red-zone run in the fourth quarter, the final play he was in the game for. He did not participate in Stanforda€™s Sun Bowl victory over Pittsburgh, as he announced hea€™d a€œfocus on being completely healthy and prepared for the 2019 NFL draft.a€

Love is a 5-foot-10, 202-pound tailback who flashed a rare dynamism at times during his Stanford career. After rushing for 2,118 yards in his junior season, despite battling persistent ankle issues, he made the surprising decision to return for his senior season. Love finished second in the Heisman Trophy race in 2017 behind Oklahomaa€™sA Baker Mayfield. He earned unanimous All-American honors, won the Doak Walker award for the nationa€™s top tailback and earned the Pac-12a€™s Offensive Player of the Year honors.
