Chicago Bears’ Turk McBride Out for the Season with Achilles Tendon Tear

Turk McBride, defensive lineman for the Chicago Bears, has suffered a serious injury: a ruptured Achilles tendon.

McBride was taken off the field during a training camp session on Monday after he suffered the injury and now he is expected to be out for the rest of the season.

Achilles tendon tears can be difficult to recover from and rehabilitation is a slow process. Some people aren’t able to return to their full activity for nine months or more.

Treatment for this type of injury depends on several factors, including the patient’s health and activity level.

Athletes often opt for surgery to repair the tendon. There are several different surgical procedures that may be considered and the doctor will help the patient choose the best option for their case.

Whether or not surgery is utilized in treatment, physical therapy will be needed on the road to recovery.

We wish McBride the best and hope the healing process is a speedy one.
