Cromartie undergoes successful knee surgery

Tallahassee, Fla. - Florida State junior cornerback Antonio Cromartie had successful surgery to repair the ACL, LCL and hamstring tendon in his left knee Thursday morning at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. The surgery was performed by Dr. Tom Haney of the Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic.

Cromartie injured the knee during voluntary workouts on July 12. The rehabilitation process is expected to take approximately nine months.

"We expect full recovery for Antonio just as we do for all of our student-athletes," said Director of Sports Medicine Randy Oravetz. "He will begin rehab in two to three weeks once everything calms down."

Cromartie was a first team All-ACC selection last year and earned preseason Playboy All-America honors in 2005. He was also listed on the Jim Thorpe Award watch list and was rated the No. 2 cornerback in the country by The Sporting News. Since he has not redshirted, Cromartie will return next season as a redshirt junior.
