Yes, that is what I had heard, about the knee injury. He also lost his spot on the starting roster to Sapp, who was on the D line, then switched to defensive end, then switched to defensive tackle, and rode that all the way to the Hall of Fame!Nice bit of info there! I knew The Rock played football there, but didn't know it was with those guys. Talk about a terrifying looking defensive front!
I could be mistaken, but I believe I've read that a knee injury is what stopped The Rock's football playing days.
