Well, Roethlisberger is once again in the news for a not-so-pleasant reason, and this time it could affect his career and his team’s season! After getting sacked in this weekend’s match-up against the Oakland Raiders, the QB grabbed his foot in pain and had to be escorted off the field.
Now it becomes a good-news/bad-news situation: he’ll likely miss this Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, but won’t miss the entire season, which would have been the case had he suffered the more serious injury.Dealing with sports injuries is never easy—you have to balance rest time with allegiance to your team. As a Houston podiatrist, I always put primary emphasis on the athlete’s personal wellbeing, not the winning record of his or her team.
