Panthers’ Charles Godfrey Out for Season with Achilles Tendon Tear
Charles Godfrey, safety for the Carolina Panthers, will be out for the rest of the season due to a tear in his right Achilles tendon. The announcement was made Monday by Charlie Dayton, team spokesman.
Godfrey suffered the injury during the second half of the game against Buffalo on Sunday. The injury was sustained when Godfrey attempted to break up a pass to wide receiver Stevie Johnson. Godfrey is a strong member of the Panthers team, so Godfrey will be missed this season and it will be a blow to the team.
Coach Ron Rivera has said other team members will be evaluated and an appropriate replacement for Godfrey will be chosen, but no replacement has been announced yet.
Achilles tendon ruptures are serious injuries and take a long time to recover from properly. It takes time and rehabilitation to get back to activities, especially activities that put a lot of stress on the feet and legs, like football.
There are surgical and non-surgical treatment options for Achilles tendon tears, but surgery is usually chosen for athletes because it decreases the chance of a re-rupture.
