Kory Lichtensteiger’s 2011 season was cut short just six weeks into the year when, on the Redskins’ first drive of the game against the Philadelphia Eagles, he went down with devastating injuries to his right knee.
Doctors determined Lichtensteiger had torn both his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and media collateral ligament (MCL), and the Bowling Green product was put under the knife to repair both ligaments Oct. 25, ending his season.
Lichtensteiger knew he had a tough recovery road ahead. But more than a year after that injury, he’s one of the anchors of a Redskins offensive line that is leading the NFL in rushing yards and is in first place in the NFC East Division.
His quick comeback has certainly been a boost for the Redskins’ potent offensive attack, and today the team announced Lichtensteiger as its recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award. The honor is given annually to a player from each National Football League team who displays extraordinary courage in the face of adversity.
Here’s a collection of videos chronicling Lichtensteiger’s journey back onto the field and into his familiar position as the Redskins’ starting left guard:
