I remember that! But did it really take 2 years?
didn't the niners shelf jesse sapolu for 2 years?
ricky watters took 1991 off...
I remember Sherrard, I forgot he broke his leg and took some time to recover. I knew it took a while but I forgot it was 2 years. As for sapoulu, I don't remember him being seriously injured. Michael Carter and Kevin f*gan were though - and both took quite a bit of time to get back on the field, but they were dominant players for us during the dynasty years.
