"I am done for the season," Stoltenberg said. "I tore my meniscus and had lateral cartilage damage in my knee."
Stoltenberg is actually nearing a month of being post surgery. He is going through physical therapy and says that he could have that wrapped up by the end of the calendar year.
"I had surgery about three weeks ago now. I am doing physical therapy. That will probably last until December or so."
Gretna head coach Chad Jepsen was unaware of the physical therapy timeline with Stoltenberg. He knows that it's still season ending, but acknowledged that it's a pretty quick turnaround.
"I didn't know when he was going to be done with therapy," Head Coach Chad Jepsen said. "That is sooner than I actually kind of expected, but still that is for the season."
The fact that Stoltenberg might be wrapped up with his rehab by the end of the year might mean that he could be available for part of the winter seasons. The question is which one?
"Mick has played basketball before in past years. I wasn't sure if he was going to do that again this year or not. He had talked about possibly wrestling.
"With his therapy I really don't know what he will do in addition to playing football for Gretna. I will leave that up to him to think about."
Coach Jepsen went on to say that he was unsure when Stoltenberg was planning on taking his official visit to Lincoln.
