Ryan Lochte re-tore MCL in practice earlier this month

Despite Ryan Lochte‘s total flop in his TV debut with “What Would Ryan Lochte do?” last year, the 29-year-old swimmer may be a better actor than previously believed.

Lochte scratched from the Charlotte Grand Prix last week, and he told reporters at the meet that it was precautionary after feeling knee soreness in practice that week. Lochte tore his MCL and sprained his ACL in November when a fan attempted to leap into the three-time Olympian’s arms.

“The knee’s good,” Lochte said Friday night in Charlotte. “That’s all I really need to say about it today. It’s getting stronger, I’m doing a lot of therapy. I’m just getting back to my normal self.”

Turns out, the knee isn’t good. During an event at Macy’s Herald Square in New York City, Lochte revealed that he had re-tore his MCL in practice ahead of the Grand Prix event in practice, reported Women’s Wear Daily on Thursday.
