Re: Rogers has foot injury

I'd love to see the Skins come back for just ONE game. We'll give FedEx to the Nationals...

Re: Rogers has foot injury

How about a card for C. Rogers? All Warpathers could sign!

It was done for Jansen last year.

Re: Rogers has foot injury

Wasn't Coles problem a stress fracture in the toe?

I hope this doesn't turn out to be a long term problem.

This just gives The Ade a chance to step up and show off his ever polishing skills.

Re: Rogers has foot injury

Here's some info on stress fractures:

http://sportsmedicine.about.com/cs/f...ts/a/foot4.htm

Sounds like rest is the best option.

One positive is that Williams brings his rookies along slowly as he saw last year with Taylor.

Re: Rogers has foot injury

Does anyone have any insight to how this will effect our signing him to a contract. Can we put in a sipulation that he must heel for the deal? Will we wait to see how he progresses before signing? Will this lower his value and we just take the risk and sign him to a cheeper contrack? ETC...

Re: Rogers has foot injury

Matty:

Good medical info on that link.

I used to referee basketball until a back injury made that impossible. Twice I had a stress fracture in the foot. They hurt and they hurt a lot. You can walk and you can run on them, but you are keenly aware of each and every time that foot hits the ground.

My doctor said that the ONLY cure is rest and kleeping as much weight off the foot as possible. Shoe supports and cushions help a bit, but time is the only cure.

The worst stress fracture I had happened sometime in late February of one year. I "ignored" it to finish out the season in early/mid-March. Then I procrastinated going to the doctor because I knew what it was and knew what he was going to tell me and I didn't want to hear it. I finally went to him about 1 May and got the diagnosis. It was completely healed in October.

Re: Rogers has foot injury

So based on your experience, do you think it would be possible for it to be fully healed by time for the season to start? Generally speaking...

Re: Rogers has foot injury

I think the article on the Post said he's been in a walking boot for 2 weeks now. So according to the medical info in the article above he should be good to go in another 4-6 weeks. Of course I'm not a doctor but I think that's a reasonable timeline.

Re: Rogers has foot injury

Thankfully this injury was discovered at a "down time" and not in the preceding days to TC. The small consolation, and I stress small, is that Carlos will be able to take this time to learn the minutia of Williams' playbook. I am the farthest thing from an authority on foot related injuries but my roommate is a budding podiatrist and he noted that this type on injury, with rest, can heal in less than 6 weeks.

Re: Rogers has foot injury

Since Rogers is younger than I was with either of my stress fractures, he should heal faster than I did. In addition there are "stimulating devices" available now that increase the rate of bone fracture healing; they did not exist when I had my stress fractures.

He'll be in training camp but they will keep a close eye on his running adn working out. By September, he should be OK. But he will almost certainly miss some practice reps and pre-season game time just to protect the injury from getting worse.

It's not great news, but it isn't nearly as bad as a torn Achiles tendon or something like that...
