The injury was very gruesome and some were speculating that Lattimore had broken his femur and torn all the ligaments in his knee. Thankfully, the dislocated knee is something that Lattimore will be able to come back from.
Lattimore was returning this season after suffering an ACL tear last year that brought his 2011 season to a halt.
