Campbell, a 6-foot, 7-inch, 215-pound middle blocker, told Northridge Coach John Price of his decision Wednesday night. "I'm really disappointed, but it's a decision I had to make," Campbell said. "If my knees were OK, I'd be back."

Barry Foster has recurring swelling in his right knee, casting doubt on his availability for Carolina's exhibition game Saturday against the New York Giants. "I don't know if we'll have to get it drained or what. We'll probably have to wait until tomorrow to decide," Coach Dom Capers said after Foster missed the Panthers' practice.

Jeff Campbell remembers it as one of the most inspiring moments of his volleyball career.

After spending a year at Pierce College, Campbell transferred to Cal State Northridge, where he redshirted last season. At a tournament at UC Santa Barbara, he sat behind UCLA Coach Al Scates.

— Those who think Dwight Howard isn't doing enough for the Lakers should consider what Andrew Bynum is doing for Philadelphia. The former Lakers center has not played a minute for the 76ers, sidelined because of knee problems. It wouldn't come as a surprise to Lakers followers during his seven seasons with the team, though his latest injury escapade was unusual. He sat out the exhibition season because of a bone bruise in the knee and felt new soreness after a trip to the bowling alley last month.

Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell took the piece of treasure from teammate and captain Dustin Brown and hoisted the Stanley Cup above his head, skated away, hollered and kicked up his right leg in celebration. For Mitchell, it has been almost frozen in time … those scenes of the Cup at Staples Center. That was the last time - June 11, 2012 - that Mitchell played in an NHL game and the powerful image of the veteran holding the Cup has not been supplemented by new ones on the ice. It was looking like the final frame of Mitchell's long-and-winding career because knee problems, including two separate procedures, kept him off the ice last season in the lockout-shortened season.

It could be the countdown to nothing for the Philadelphia 76ers, the way each breathless update is offset by another discouraging development. Andrew Bynum will be ready for the start of training camp after receiving injections in his arthritic knees in Germany!

An MRI exam performed on the knee Monday proved inconclusive because of a previous anterior cruciate ligament tear Griffin suffered in college.

Some player injuries are discussed like they're being prepared for a medical journal. Daily updates, additional medical opinions, latest X-rays. And some just aren't discussed at all? Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis had left knee arthroscopic surgery on Friday, which seemed to be news to most everyone but his doctor and wife, who first announced it on Twitter on Sunday. Dr. Neal ElAttrache performed what the Dodgers called on Monday -- following this? -- a cleanup procedure and said they expect him to begin rehabbing the knee next week, begin his normal training routine in six weeks and be ready to start the 2013 season.
