Lattimore remained hospitalized on Sunday after suffering a horrendous second-quarter right-knee injury against Tennessee. The source said the injury could require multiple surgeries and major reconstruction could be involved.
In the 2003 Fiesta Bowl, McGahee suffered a left-knee injury that resulted in damage to his ACL, PCL and MCL.
McGahee went through multiple surgeries and returned to play in the NFL.
While Lattimore may not have the exact ligament damage as McGahee, the injuries could be considered bad enough to require an extensive rehabilitation period.
Lattimore was carted off the field after the injury and taken to a local hospital. The school continues to say the he will be evaluated this week and is out indefinitely.
