Illinois senior OL Corey Lewis played through a torn ACL in 2013.
He didn't even realize that he'd done so until a postseason MRI revealed that his ACL had completely torn for the fourth time. Lewis said the knee hadn't felt right since training camp. Lewis' doctor Thomas Klootwyk believes he played the entire season without an ACL. "I felt that if I could play, there was no reason to MRI it and get shut down if something came out of the MRI," Lewis said. "I just wanted to play my last season." Said coach Tim Beckman: "It kind of astonishes you, because he did play well." Lewis still hopes to play in the NFL, but this setback won't help in that pursuit. "I'm giving it my shot," he said. "I think I'll be ready for training camp." Jan 30 - 5:01 PM
