could be up walking and even jogging on Saturday after his ACL surgery on Thursday morning. Chad tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during Clemson's spring game.

“He’s got a very positive attitude about it all, and he’s in a good place,” said Charlene, who flew to South Carolina on Thursday for the surgery. “You have to trust that things happen for a reason and that God has a plan. Sometimes you don’t know what it is and often times things turn out to be blessings in disguise and of course we’re still wondering what that is. But he has a positive attitude.”

The surgery will be performed by Dr. Larry Bowman, Clemson’s orthopedic surgeon, who has conducted more than 1,000 ACL surgeries. Bowman is close friends with renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who has repaired many damaged ligaments.

“The fastest anyone has ever healed from an ACL injury from an athletic standpoint to actually be able to compete was four months but reality is more six-eight,” said Kevin Kelly, Chad’s father. “The coaches are really wanting him to play this season and we’re hoping he’s going to be back by the middle of the season.”

No way his doctor will allow that unless its a partial tear

My ortho surgeon told me no such thang as a partial tear

ACL only controls lateral motion
