The Dread High Ankle Sprain ranks third on list of most vaguely frightening/ common Eagles injuries

I did not like reading that Brian Westbrook described his ankle as “closer to being a high ankle sprain than anything else.”  We know of these high ankle sprains, and we don’t like them.  They’re a bit mysterious in that I don’t know a non-pro athlete to ever suffer one, and they seem capable of lingering for weeks and weeks with no discernible timetable for recovery (see also, hamstring injuries).

Of course, owing to our previously mentioned virtuoso command of a wide array sports injuries, we all know that the high ankle sprain is only the third most scary “injury none of us actually understand but which seems to have a fancy name,” behind (#2) the sports hernia and the undefeated/ still champion (#1) Lisfranc injury.

(Sorry about the image above, I couldn’t find one with out comic sans.  Like most civilized human beings, I too f*cking hate comic sans.)
