Because he had surgery to fully both repair and reattach his meniscus. If he had gone for a simple reattachment, he'd be back in eight weeks, but his knee would have been blown out again in a year or two. This was a procedure to both repair the cartilage tear and ensure that it's properly working within the joint.
"surgery to fully repair both..." -- both what??
"Fully both," not "fully repair." Word order matters.

Rose required surgery to both sew the tear back together, as well as to fully reattach the cartilage back to the inner part of his knee.
Ohhhh. The cartilage was torn away from the bone. I'm surprised he could even walk off the court. The pain must have been tremendous. I don't think I can recall a case where the cartilage had to be reattached to the bone. It sounds pretty freakish. Too bad.

Out for the year (in November) -- I knew it had to be more than just a simple tear.
