ridinbend You could do a lot more damage and have a much rougher road if you did that one turn that totally destroys it. Let this season go, mammoth is virtually dead for the season as is.

Take your doc's advice above all else...that being said, I've ripped ACL and medial twice in both knees...12 week+ recovery depending on severity. My guess is shut it down for the season.
