Best case scenario: Ridley’s foot feels 100% immediately and he doesn’t even miss a practice. Worst case scenario: Ridley’s experiences complications that ultimately lead to his death. Most

Julio being one of the best WRs of all time + him still being in the back-end of his prime isn't a detractor at all as you're framing it. They consistently bracket Julio with a safety over the top + o

It looks like his foot just sort of flaps once the toes come free from the turf.  Not sure I'm buying the ankle designation, but usually a trainer will not let you walk on a fresh foot sprain as you can make it worse.


I think he stretched his ankle ligaments out when he hyperextended it and his toe connecting with the ground put extra stress on it.
 

Flex your ankle and point your toes down as far as you can to try to make a straight line with your lower leg.  Then imagine kicking something with your toe.  Think about how much stress that puts on your outer ankle ligaments.

 

As someone whose had plenty of sports-related ankle injuries, it makes sense to me.

We need the guy who said Dak would only miss a month when it appeared he was heading for an amputation to tell us Ridley will practice in full next Thursday. 

Guessing he doesn't have Ridley on his team like he did Dak since he's not in here giving a super optimistic diagnosis

Don't make fun of him, I believe he the real doctor.

It didn't look bad, imo. I'm not a Dr., But the injury didn't look extreme. And he walked off on his own, without aid. Slight limp. I'll be surprised if he kisses more than 1 game


looked like a pretty significant limp to me

I agree. The bye week comes at the perfect time as well. Week 11 is 3 1/2 weeks away.

Well I am guessing we can kiss him goodbye as he misses a lot of time.

It could be worse, right? You would think if it was something serious there would be a little pessimism on this...fingers crossed it's only a one game absence at most.


it could always be worse. I was worried he had a foot tear/sprain originally. Ankles can linger but feet can be even worse. Best case he gets limited practice and makes it back for next week. *Realistic* worst case given all we know is he is held through the bye. Maybe, maaaybe one extra week. I’ll take it at this point.
