why does frank only have 1 year left? he has the best vision in the nfl that makes him less dependent on his physical skills. he could loose another step and still be better han 90% of the backs out there. I could see him being our starter for another 3 years.

But almost without exception RBs hit a wall at 30. He's not going to lose a step, he's going to lose 5. He might still be on the team for 2 more years but he's not starting.
i love how Frank annually shuts up his doubters tho.

Is this the annual Frank is done thread? Lets trade him, reduce his carries, make way for LMJ to fumble? Then he has another great year like always.

Frank will do well this year. The only way he doesn't start is because Kendall Hunter explodes. Frank can start this year and the next

every story ever written on Latt's injury says all four. he may have just been tired of listing all of them in the vid.

ESPN reported 3. I don't recall any fracture in there either.
Long term? Lattimore.

Lattimore "ONLY" tore his ACL, PCL and MCL and no fractures. Yippee
"After the ACL in Lattimore's left knee was torn in 2011, he sustained a torn ACL, PCL and MCL in his right knee against Tennessee in the ninth game of his junior season."

The Gamecocks made an official announcement regarding the running back's injury on Sunday, saying the hyperextension of Lattimore's knee "resulted in injury to several ligaments." The release also said that there were no fractures and no "additional injuries" according to Dr. Jeffrey Guy. Willis McGahee in 2003 tore his ACL, MCL and PCL. McGahee was still drafted in the first round. . . .
