TODAY show just reported it as "career ending" injury. Heck, football and basketball players are back the next season after surgery & rehab. It's become as common in women's hoops as Tommy John surgery in baseball.
Saying it's even potentially career ending is asinine.
You need to define career. Will she run again? Absolutely. Will she ever come close to this same level again? Absolutely not. Other sports are more skill based where you don't lose the talent, you just get a little rusty. You can't take 12 months off from running and get back to the same Olympic level fitness you had prior to the injury. Unless you have some great dope.
This is stupid. Of course she can get back to and exceed her current levels of fitness if there are no long term consequences of this injury. Sure she'll be out all of next year but in 2018 as long as she's healthy there is no reason she won't get back to where she is now. Granted this knocks her improvement back likely two years which sucks for her.
