WR Marqise Lee Injures Ankle

Wide receiver Marqise Lee of the Jacksonville Jaguars recently sprained his right ankle.  Lee suffered the injury during the Jaguars’ overwhelming victory over the Houston Texans, 45-7.  The injury occurred during the first quarter, but he wasn’t ruled out until the second half.  It is unknown when Lee will be able to return or if he’ll make it back before the end of the season.  Lee is the Jaguars’ leading receiver, so his loss will be a huge blow to the team.

Sports Related Foot and Ankle Injuries

Foot and ankle injuries are a common occurrence when it comes to athletes of any sport. While many athletes dismiss the initial aches and pains, the truth is that ignoring potential foot and ankle injuries can lead to serious problems. As athletes continue to place pressure and strain the area further, a mild injury can turn into something as serious as a rupture and may lead to a permanent disability. There are many factors that contribute to sports related foot and ankle injuries, which include failure to warm up properly, not providing support or wearing bad footwear. Common injuries and conditions athletes face, including:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Plantar Fasciosis
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Achilles Tendon Rupture
  • Ankle Sprains

Sports related injuries are commonly treated using the RICE method. This includes rest, applying ice to the injured area, compression and elevating the ankle. More serious sprains and injuries may require surgery, which could include arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery. Rehabilitation and therapy may also be required in order to get any recovering athlete to become fully functional again. Any unusual aches and pains an athlete sustains must be evaluated by a licensed, reputable medical professional.
