The last time we saw her play was during the infamous “brawl” game between the Detroit Shock and Los Angeles Sparks last July 22. Cheryl Ford went to go separate some players and twisted her knee in the process, tearing her ACL. But now she’s ready to return, longtime athletic trainer Laura Ramus says:
Ford passed her biggest test to date during a 5-on-5 scrimmage Wednesday, all but ensuring she’ll be in uniform against Indiana Friday for the first time since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee last July. Ford is eager to rejoin her teammates on the court – for as long as her lungs will allow her.
