Sprained Ankle May Keep Linebacker London Fletcher Out Of Upcoming Game
London Fletcher, linebacker for the Washington Redskins, injured his ankle on Sunday in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles, which the Washington Redskins won 31-6.
The head coach of the Washington Redskins, Mike Shanahan, confirmed the injury in a Monday press conference and called the ankle sprain a “concern.”
The Redskins are set to go up against the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving day, so Fletcher will have to make a quick recovery to be able to participate in the game.
According to Shanahan, Fletcher will be back if possible for the Thursday game, but the injury will have to be evaluated day-by-day.
Ankle injuries sustained while playing football can be caused by improper footwear, inadequate stretching, and/or play on artificial surfaces, among other things.
It is always important to have ankle injuries, or any injury sustained while playing sports, evaluated by a medical professional as soon as possible. Do not continue to play if you have been injured. You could cause further injury or even permanent damage.
To help prevent injury while playing sports:
- Be sure to stretch properly before you play or practice.
- Always wear proper, well-fitting footwear.
- Play sports on appropriate surfaces.
- Know your limits. Don’t push your body beyond what it can handle and increase workout routines gradually.
