"There's not really much treatment you can do," Pankey said. " I talked to a lot of different doctors. There's not really much you can do except stay off of it and not play, and that's not really one of my options. I basically just forced myself to play, and it got worse and worse."
"It's been rough," Pankey said Wednesday during the Terps' media day at Comcast Center. "I'm used to playing. I'm not used to being hurt. A lot of people think I've gotten a lot of injuries throughout my career, but I haven't."
