Scranton: "You had a hard time accepting what had happened at first [referring to a knee injury].One of the things we talked about was the partnership between you, me and Jimmy. But there was someone else in that partnership too, wasn't there?"
Warner: "Oh, without a doubt, Doc, it was my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. And without that faith, and believing that if it was His will I would be able to play again, I don't think psychologically that I would have been able to get over the trauma of the whole thing. Basically, I had had no major physical injuries and now, all of the sudden, here's a potential, career-ending injury."
WARNER TO MISS PRESEASON
August 8, 1989
Curt Warner, the Seattle Seahawks' all-time rushing leader, underwent arthroscopic surgery yesterday to remove torn cartilage from his right knee, team president and general manager Tom Flores announced. Warner, who gained 1,025 yards last season as the Seahawks won their first AFC West title, was examined yesterday and the decision to operate was made immediately. "Rather than wait and wait, we decided it would be better to go ahead and get it done," said Flores.
