Robinson Cano Breaks Toe in Japan

The future of treating ACL tears: Less invasive surgery

Nearly three decades ago, a man on crutches changed the course of Dr. Martha Murray’s life. The two met at a party at Stanford University, where Murray was a graduate student in engineering. They talked about the man’s recent anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, tear. When he told Murray his reconstruction surgery would require a tendon graft and holes drilled into his thighbone and shinbone, she was shocked.

Murray wondered why surgeons couldn’t simply sew the two ends of the torn ligament back together and let it heal. The question nagged at her, led her to the university’s medical library for research, and, ultimately, resulted in a switch from engineering to medical school. Ever since, Murray has studied ACL tears and sought ways to help the ligament heal without grafts or holes drilled into bones. The result has been a sponge scaffold now ready for testing in human knees.

Ryan Zimmerman Watches Nats Celebrate From Afar

Most of the Nationals celebrated in Atlanta last night.

Congratulations?

“Thanks,” Zimmerman said by phone. “I guess.”

Zimmerman is rehabilitating his torn hamstring, and playing in instructional league games in Viera, Florida while his teammates commemorated the 2014 National League East championship is an annoying necessity.

“It sucks,” he said. “Hopefully, I’m helping us get to the point where we have a few more celebrations like that. But those are not just my teammates, but my friends. It’s hard to see them celebrate and not be there with them. We’ve all devoted so much of our time together.”
