Vancouver Whitecaps’ Jay DeMerit Out Indefinately With Ruptured Achilles Tendon
Jay DeMerit, center back for the Vancouver Whitecaps, ruptured his Achilles tendon Saturday during a game against Toronto.
The injury was initially thought to be a strained calf muscle, but it was later confirmed that the injury was actually a more serious Achilles tendon rupture.
DeMerit had been suffering from Achilles tendinitis in the preseason.
He will be out indefinitely while he recovers from the injury.
Achilles tendon injuries are common in sports and can take a long time to recover from.
Symptoms of an Achilles tendon rupture include:
- A popping or snapping sensation.
- Swelling on the back of the leg between the heel and the calf.
- Difficulty walking and rising up the toes.
Treatments for an Achilles tendon rupture depend on the severity of the injury.
