Jacoby Jones Suffers Minor Ankle Sprain Early in the Season

fungal toenail2Jacboy Jones, wide receiver for the Chargers, has been temporarily sidelined for what appears to be a minor ankle sprain. The injury occurred during the Week 1 win over the Lions. While Jones is a key player for the team, Branden Oliver and Keenan Allen are likely to take over for him until he is ready and healthy enough to join the team again. Should Oliver and Allen not be available or prepared fourth receiver Dontrelle Inman will step up.

How Does an Ankle Sprain Occur?

Ankle sprains take place when the ligaments in your ankle are torn or stretched beyond their limits. There are multiple ways that the ankle can become injured, including twisting or rolling over onto your ankle, putting undue stress on it, or causing trauma to the ankle itself.

What are the Symptoms?

·         Mild to moderate bruising

·         Limited mobility

·         Swelling

·         Discoloration of the skin (depending on severity)

Preventing a Sprain

·         Wearing appropriate shoes for the occasion

·         Stretching before exercises and sports

·         Knowing your limits can aid in prevention

Treatment of a Sprain

Treatment of a sprain depends on the severity. Many times, people are told to rest and remain off their feet completely, while others are given an air cast. If the sprain is very severe, surgery may be required.

If you have suffered an ankle sprain previously, you may want to consider additional support such as a brace and regular exercises to strengthen the ankle.
