Poor Chad Pennington.
Every season, the former New York Jets QB finds a way to have the year cut short due to injury. This time it happened before the season began.
Pennington tore an anterior cruciate ligament in a pickup basketball game and will undergo surgery next week with well-known surgeon Dr. James Andrews.
Lasting just two plays last season with the Miami Dolphins before hurting his right shoulder (and having surgery on it for the fourth time) Pennington remains hopeful about a return to the NFL.
Pennington’s career completion percentage of 66.0 is the highest in NFL history among QB with at least 1,500 attempts.
He led the Jets to the playoffs in 2002, 2004 and 2006 and the Dolphins in 2008.
