Most of time with a partial rupture, patients will have only modest discomfort.....and can continue to walk......many times quite normally.
You might want to look at the Wild Card Week Houston Texans Injury Report. It may surprise you to find Posey was on it with a "FOOT." Remember, in one of my previous posts (#15 above), I explained the "aura" preceding Achilles tendon rupture........i.e., Achilles tendonitis. Well, this condition presents typically with heel pain. And what part of the anatomy is the heel?.......the FOOT. Posey evidently was already demonstrating the warning signs of what was about to happen.
This post really makes me feel sad for Posey.
He basically ruined his career and the team docs either didn't know or didn't care about the risk of him playing in that game.
I'm hoping/praying that you can have a successful career DeVier. Even though it probably cant/wont be what it could/should have been.
When are fans going to start asking the hard questions about the Texans team physicians? This yr Reed/Cody/Posey etc... not to mention the signing of Schaub to a 4 yr deal when he obviously will never be the QB he was in 2009.
Not to mention days gone by Boselli/Joppru/Davis=Williams etc.... These docs are at best negligent and at worst $$$$$ whores. After all who will be doing Poseys surgery? Who will profit from said surgery?
Unlike the rest of the Texans org. BoB seems to be losing alot of $$$$/players because of his medical staff/trainers incompetence. IMHO
