    So you consider DeCastro "injury prone" as well?

    Treatment:

    Nonsurgical Treatment: Nonsurgical treatment is recommended for Lisfranc injuries that are associated with a sprain of the Lisfranc ligament and no complete tear. It is also recommended when there is no loss of alignment of the midfoot. These patients will be placed into a nonweightbearing cast for 6 weeks followed by removal from the cast into a fracture walker. Once the Lisfranc injury is healed, the fracture walker will be removed and physical therapy will be started.

    Surgical Treatment: Surgery is recommended for any Lisfranc injury that involves tearing of the Lisfranc ligament, loss of joint alignment or fracture of the midfoot. Internal fixation may be performed to reduce or align bones and ligaments into position with plates and/or screws. Due to the fact that at least some of the hardware will be passed across joints, this hardware will need to be removed within 3-6 months postoperatively. If the hardware that spans across the joint is not removed, this hardware will likely fail leading to a break in the hardware. In severe Lisfranc injuries, fusion of the joint or joints may be performed. Fusion fixes the joints and does not allow motion at that joint level.

    Rehabilitation:

    After surgical intervention or nonsurgical intervention, the patient is initially nonweightbearing between 6-8 weeks. After 6-8 weeks, weightbearing is allowed and physical therapy is started. Due to the fact that this is a serious injury to the midfoot, many athletes may have difficulty returning back to their normal activity level after this type of injury.

    Great. Two years in a row, we lost a promising rookie to injury.

    So frustrating with this team and the stable of running back we have acquired. Hope for a speedy recovery for Bell though.

    Thia sucks because Redman is useless...

    I agree 100% Redman is awful, Dwyer is ok, and we don't know much about the rest.
