BRUNELL UNDERGOES MRI EXAM, WILL HAVE ARTHROSCOPY

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Mark Brunell underwent a magnetic resonance imaging exam (MRI) on his injured right knee this morning at Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville. The MRI revealed damage to the anterior cruciate ligament and the medial collateral ligament. Jaguars team physician Dr. Stephen Lucie will perform an arthroscopic procedure on the knee after the swelling subsides. The arthroscopic procedure is not expected to take place until the end of this week or early next week.

If necessary, a reconstruction of the ligaments will be done at the time of the arthroscopic procedure. It has not yet been determined how long Brunell will be out of action.

Brunell injured the same knee in 1991 during his college career at the University of Washington. He underwent an ACL reconstruction and an MCL repair at that time.
