Some offseason injuries are just flat-out unbelievable. Then there’s the one Dusan Langura suffered while home in his native Switzerland.
Langura, who was primed to enroll at Georgia this fall as a preferred walk-on, tore his ACL when a bomb went off while he was serving his military commitment in his home country.
Yup, a bomb went off and one of Langura’s injuries was a torn ACL. But he’s still alive and will recover, thankfully.
“It really is a unique story,” Georgia coach Mark Fox said, in a slight understatement. “He was injured in the explosion, and one of the injuries was a torn ACL. We had committed to have him come. He can really shoot the ball. He was gonna be on our team. He had to serve his military commitment, and this happened during it. We’re still gonna honor our commitment to him, and once he gets healthy he’ll be out there with us. But he probably won’t be cleared to practice until January or February.”
