2017 LB Waynmon Steed to have surgery on a torn ACL.
I wanted you guys to hear it from me first. I appreciate all of the support this season for my son. Steed has played all season with a lingering knee issue and being that he missed his junior season due to a shoulder injury, I assume he didn't want to face the realization that he would have to miss his senior year also. After the first game against Eastridge he tweaked his knee in practice gearing up for Palm Beach. He sat out that game and returned the next week for Killian. Not realizing how serious the injury was, he wore a brace and played through the pain the following weeks, dealing with soreness and continued pain throughout the season. He reinjured it against Norland and Jackson. Well after the season ended I convinced him to get an MRI, and we found out last week that he needed surgery for a torn ACL. He met with coach Richt and coach Diaz and they both convinced him that he is family and they will continue to honor his scholarship. They are eager to get him into rehab and back into action next fall. Another minor setback for a major comeback. My son has been through a lot the last two years but he is in good spirits and he is ready to put in the work that is needed to help put UM where it should be amongst college football's elite programs!!!
