No wasting time, Thomas Davis will have ACL surgery today

Sometimes when players suffer torn ACL’s, they are forced to wait a week and even two before having surgery because of the swelling. Thomas Davis is going to get right to business. He is scheduled to have his torn right ACL repaired today, according to Darin Gantt of the Charlotte Observer.

Davis tore the ACL for the second time since November earlier this week, and the Panthers are holding out hope, no matter how remote it is, that he will be able to return to the field before the 2010 season is concluded. Davis had made a rapid recovery from the ACL tear he suffered during the season in a game against the New Orleans Saints.

Davis, who was injured backpedaling on the practice field Tuesday in a non-contact incident, will be operated on by team surgeon Pat Connor. Davis already sought a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews.
