APChad Penningtonís run of awful luck continues.
Heís been rehabbing his surgically-repaired shoulder with hopes of making another NFL comeback. That plan will be put on hold after he tore his ACL playing pickup basketball, according to ESPNís Chris Mortensen.
Pennington will undergo surgery on April 7. Itís hard to imagine him coming back from this latest injury in addition to the shoulder issues, but weíve counted him out too quickly before.
SIís Peter King believed Pennington may have wound up finding a starting job in 2011 because he could step in to a new system without much practice and be ready to go. Unfortunately, that wonít happen now.
