Kevin Faulk Confirms Torn ACL: 'I'm Gonna Be Gone For The Year'

Kevin Faulk spoke to the media late Wednesday morning and confirmed the reports: he did indeed tear his ACL in Sunday's loss to the Jets. He'll undergo surgery in about a month and will miss the remainder of the 2010 season. 

While addressing the media, Faulk said, "I'm not sad anymore. Cried a lot when it first happened, but that's life."

He knew something was wrong when he got hit Sunday, but "that's the game we play."

Faulk added that now "other guys gotta step up."

"My son asked, 'Are you done?' I told him I was gonna rehab my butt off and see what happens."
