Some details came about Trinton's first surgery and his recent surgery on his ACL. This was posted by someone who is very familiar with this surgery:

"I was shocked to hear that Trinton Sturdivant's original ACL reconstruction used an allograft rather than an autograft. Allografts have greater than a 25% failure rate in 2 years time amongst young athletes. Autografts have around a 2% failure rate. Even the studies with a high autograft failure rate show that allografts fail about 3x as often.

Trinton's second surgery used a bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft, thank God. I feel bad for the guy because he took very poor advice with his first surgery and is now paying the price."

Maybe someone can remind me I believe Finneran had the same type of issue, his 2nd surgery used an autograft as well which was different than his first. Just some info for ya.

Why would anyone go the other way with those percentages? Is it easy recovery the other way? I'm sure they had to be a reason.
