Bummer to hear about TJ Schiller tearing his meniscus and ACL the other day.  He got a bunch of love via twitter tand many people are sad to see him suffer this injury. 

He landed wrong on a trick at the Keystone Mountain Resort in Colorado where he knew immediately he had done some damage to his left knee.  Preliminary doctor reports were that he likely had a 3rd degree ACL tear.  He went to Vail doctors on Tuesday and the injury was confirmed.  Two surgeries will be performed.  One on the meniscus and one on the ACL eight weeks later.  He must wait for swelling to go down before he is operated on.  He is expected to spend the holidays with his family in B.C.  Sorry to hear about it T.J.   Have a speedy recovery!

Check out the video of him getting a perfect score in last years X-Games for throwing down a dub 1620
