They have 2 options only. A cadavor (spelling) from a dead person with his blood type or they can harvest part of his patellar tendon and use it as his ACL. I chose the later because according to my doctor(who did Carson Palmer's knee) the patellar will grow back on its own and you can only do a cadavor once. The recovery time for the 2nd option is a couple months longer and has a different rehab then the cadavor option but according to my doc, the patellar tendon as an ACL has a lower re-tear percentage then a cadavor.
So if i had to guess, he's likely to chose option 2 but i have no idea to be sure
I'm quoting you but your thoughts are common among a lot of Colts fans but I'm not of the belief that Pagano is a great or even good defensive coordinator. He was a DC for one year at Baltimore and he took over a defense that had Ray lewis, Suggs, Ed Reed, Pollard, Ngata, Kruger, and Jimmy Smith. In other words he took over a stacked defense and road their coat tails for a year.
Now, from all reports he is good at working with DBs. But there is not a lot of evidence that he is good at running an entire defense.
