Jets' Running Back Suffers Foot Fracture

Monday, 06 August 2018 00:00

Eli McGuire of the New York Jets has been sidelined for the foreseeable future due to a broken foot. Recent news has emerged stating that the team's 2017 sixth-round draft pick will need surgery to repair the fracture. McGuire is expected to miss approximately three to six weeks of gameplay due to the injury. It was announced that the Jets have started to look for replacement running backs, which has led many to believe that they expect McGuire to miss a significant amount of time. The best case scenario for the Jets would be for McGuire’s injury to heal in the short end of the recovery window, which would allow him to return in time for the team’s third game of the season. If you have a foot fracture and are looking to explore your treatment options and recovery time frame, it is best to see a podiatrist right away.

When Is Surgery Necessary?

Foot and ankle surgery is generally reserved for cases in which less invasive, conservative procedures have failed to alleviate the problem. Some of the cases in which surgery may be necessary include:

  • Removing foot deformities like bunions and bone spurs
  • Severe arthritis that has caused bone issues
  • Cosmetic reconstruction

What Types of Surgery Are There?

The type of surgery you receive will depend on the nature of the problem you have. Some of the possible surgeries include:

  • Bunionectomy for painful bunions
  • Surgical fusion for realignment of bones
  • Neuropathy decompression surgery to treat nerve damage

Benefits of Surgery

Although surgery is usually a last resort, it can provide more complete pain relief compared to non-surgical methods and may allow you to finally resume full activity.

Surgical techniques have also become increasingly sophisticated. Techniques like endoscopic surgery allow for smaller incisions and faster recovery times.
