Those big contracts and fulfilled boyhood dreams come with a bigger price.  That same Washington Post survey reveals that more than 90% of retired players reported suffering at least one major injury while in the NFL. More than half reported three or more; one in five reported five or more.

Derek’s best protection against this injury is his offensive line, which clearly let him down on this play, but ankle injuries can happen off the field as well. Even though you’ve never suited up and stepped on a football field, this is one of those freak injuries that can happen to people regardless of their endeavors. Athletics, recreational activities, even incidental everyday activities can result in a fracture on a sudden and strange turn of events that compromises the position of the joint and causes the bone to break.  Ankle injuries can happen regardless of who you are.

The correct treatment is important no matter what profession or life stage you are in. While Carr will need to rely on his healed ankle for a successful next season, the appropriate treatment is important for anyone. Under-treatment or missed diagnoses can result in long-term complications that will prevent the joint from ever working correctly. It is important to have these evaluated when they happen.
