Danny Woodhead avoids serious ankle injury
I’ve been kind of surprised how Woody has yet to really get going this year. The emergence of Ridley has certainly covered that up though. Each week I predict big things for Woodhead but he hasn’t really delivered yet other than a couple long runs here and there.
I’ve learned that Woodhead escaped major damage on his ankle, and there is no broken bone or torn ligament. It is a sprain. It’s just not clear how bad it is or whether he’ll miss Sunday’s game against the Jets.
The first day is always the worst, and I’m sure it’s swollen. But the plan is for the Patriots to see how it responds to treatment and see how much better it gets. That’s one reason why it has been so hard to pin down a timetable. It all depends on how the ankle reacts over the next few days.
