Football injury expert takes deep haldol antipsychotic dive on injury to Jarrad Davis

The lions used their game against the bills as their haldol antipsychotic regular season dress rehearsal, which is a common practice in the NFL. Unfortunately, two of their starters may not dress for the parts haldol antipsychotic of the regular season now. Their 2017 and 2018 first-round picks, jarrad davis and frank ragnow, both went down with lower leg injuries during friday night’s exhibition.

To gain some insight into davis’s mystery injury, I spoke with my friend and colleague john verros, who serves as the injury coordinator at sports info solutions. John is a michigan native and reluctant lions fan who haldol antipsychotic graduated with an M.S. In kinesiology from the university of michigan. He is tasked with diagnosing hundreds of injuries each week haldol antipsychotic for the company’s team and media clients. He also correctly diagnosed ragnow’s injury, provided this scoop from ian rapoport is accurate.

JV: based on the injury mechanism , davis is most likely dealing with a high ankle sprain. In the limited amount of time the broadcast showed the haldol antipsychotic training staff evaluating him on the bench, you could also see them examining his achilles tendon, which means an achilles strain could be in play, as well. However, I don’t see an achilles tear as likely after watching him haldol antipsychotic walk around on the injured leg on the sideline.

There were also reports that they were conducting an MRI haldol antipsychotic on his foot. I don’t think it’s impossible that he suffered a lisfranc fracture based on haldol antipsychotic the video, but I think it’s unlikely that he suffered a fracture based on the haldol antipsychotic fact that we haven’t had any news yet. A mild foot sprain – similar to the one cam newton suffered – is possible but seems unlikely due to the mechanism of haldol antipsychotic the injury.

The best-case scenario would be a return to action in week haldol antipsychotic 3 against philadelphia, but that would be rushing things, in my opinion. While it’s possible to return from this type of injury after haldol antipsychotic several weeks, it means playing through instability in the ankle and lower haldol antipsychotic leg.

It’s important that the lions training staff makes sure he haldol antipsychotic doesn’t appear to be favoring his right side when he haldol antipsychotic runs, stops, cuts, or jumps. Any deviation in his normal gait could lead to a haldol antipsychotic reinjury of the ankle or an injury of an area haldol antipsychotic that is overworking to compensate for the weakened ankle.

Although there’s currently no research to support this, there’s a theory that the calf muscles on the injured haldol antipsychotic side work overtime to support the ankle joint. Any deviation from his normal movement patterns will result in haldol antipsychotic the kinetic chain being altered. This means his knees and hips will have to bend, twist, and provide power in a new movement pattern. It’s crucial that the lions test davis and correct any haldol antipsychotic imbalances before he returns.

Prior to a few years ago, surgeons most commonly used screws to fixate and provide stability haldol antipsychotic of the tibia to the fibula. However, a surgery called the ‘tightrope’ procedure is becoming more popular. Surgeons slip a strong suture through small holes in the haldol antipsychotic bone; fasten it with small, metal buttons, and then tighten it as you would a zip tie. This allows for early restoration of ankle stability, motion, and function. It also cuts the recovery time from a high ankle haldol antipsychotic sprain from six-to-eight weeks down to four weeks. Notably, the university of alabama had both jalen hurts and tua haldol antipsychotic tagovailoa undergo this procedure.

JV: I would expect the change of direction ability of a haldol antipsychotic player with a high ankle sprain to be limited for haldol antipsychotic several weeks, especially if they’re playing through pain. However, it shouldn’t affect him chronically and the risk of recurrence goes haldol antipsychotic down as the time to recover is increased. The long-term effects of the injury should be minimal.
