Which of the following statements concerning the tibial collateral ligament is correct?
The tibial collateral ligament (medial collateral ligament) is a strong, flat band that extends from the medial epicondyle of the femur to the medial surface of the tibia. At its midpoint, the deep fibers of the tibial collateral ligament are firmly attached to the medial meniscus. The tibial collateral ligament, weaker than the fibular collateral ligament, is more often damaged. As a result, the tibial collateral ligament and medial meniscus are commonly torn during contact sports such as football
