Offensive Linemen Cordy Glenn and Kraig Urbik Hurt, Will Miss Time
I’m sure you’ve heard the talking heads on television talk about this injury so much over the years, but not really describe it. Here is The Professor’s description of it:
The high ankle ligaments are those that are located above than the more commonly injured ligaments on the outside of the ankle. These high ankle ligaments connect the tibia to the fibula (the lower bones in the leg). It is important to have stability between the tibia and fibula at this level because there is a tremendous amount of force that passes through this junction when walking, let alone playing a contact sport. These injuries are much less common than a traditional ankle sprain, however the injury time is greater.
Replacing Cordy Glenn is second year offensive tackle Chris Hairston, who played well in spot duty last season replacing often injured Demetress Bell–a monster himself at 6′ 6″ 330 lbs. Chad Rinehart will be replacing Kraig Urbik. Rinehart has been a journeyman since being drafted in 2008.
Thank you again for reading this article, I hope I used simple enough terms for the injury. If you want to discuss it more, either leave a comment here or hit me up on twitter @TheProfessorSD. Have a great day!
