Houston Texans’ DeVier Posey Recovering Quickly from Achilles Injury

DeVier Posey, receiver for the Houston Texans, suffered an injury to his Achilles tendon during a game against the Patriots in the middle of January.

Achilles tendon injuries, especially torn Achilles tendons, are serious and can take a long time to heal, so people assumed he would be out of play for at least half of the 2013 season, if not longer.

However, now Posey seems to recovering more quickly than expected, so he may be able to return earlier than anticipated. It is not yet known exactly when the receiver will be able to return, but at least he is well on the road to recovery. Hopefully, his recovery will continue to progress smoothly.

Achilles tendon injuries are common injuries among athletes and surgery is a popular option for athletes with Achilles tendon tears, such as the one Posey suffered. The surgery is usually simple enough to be performed on an outpatient basis, but it is invasive, and it takes a long time to recover fully from.

After surgery, the patient is usually in a walking boot for at least six to twelve weeks.
