12 to 18 month rehab. Common sense tells me that he will not play at Carolina again. Thankful for the time we had him and look forward to seeing him in the NFL.
If Marcus were my son I would tell him to get ready for the NFL draft whether it be 2013 or 2014. That would be determined by how he progresses in his rehab. He's given all anyone could ever ask a football player to give to his alma mater. It's time to earn as much money as possible in the pros. I think he'll rehab like the warrior he is and have a good combine. I think he'll have his speed and strength back but I would not run any drills stressing lateral movement until 100% cleared by his doctors. The last thing I would want to see happen to this great young man is that he reinjure himself doing agility drills. I think the speed and power will be there. It's cutting and quick shifts of direction I would be concerned about so soon after his surgery.
I could not possibly wish Marcus all the good luck he deserves going forward. Here's a feeble attempt. May the Lord hold him close. May the rest of his life be filed with good health and success in his chosen profession. He's been a role model for young kids in SC from the day he signed with USC. Not enough good things can happen for him in my opinion.
I would love to see him with the Redskins. He's a natural for the stretch run plays they call. Good receiver and good pass blocker. RG-III is the HR hitter in their run game. Marcus would not have to be.
Love #21 but the only reason I want to see him back in a USC uniform is if he needs to show NFL teams he can still play.
I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I am all out of bubble gum.

His chance of playing football at a skill position is......miniscule, unfortunately.
However, what a great human being ! What an ambassador for our University !
I'm going to part with the crowd here: I think he comes back. He will sit back and see that we'll have a team in the hunt for the NC next year, especially given our favorable schedule. A man of ML's stature won't want to miss out on that chance.
He has the well documented insurance in case something happens and he can't get drafted. I'm guessing it's worth at least 3 years NFL salary based on the fact that he got it when he was red hot before the first injury.
