Two days ago, Duane Brown left OTAs slightly early before walk thrus. We asked Kubiak about injuries and he sort of just gave us the all good.

Yesterday vets didn't practice. He was there. He was walking around fine. No limp, nothing that looked wrong at all. He rode his Segway back to the stadium after practice was done.

Kubiak was saying today that the ankle was bothering him a little so they figured they'd do something now so it wouldn't be a problem later in the season.

So given your definition, not sure it is emergent. Kubiak didn't seem terribly concerned but it isn't his ankle.
I'm not sure that I understand your last statement......."but it isn't his ankle."

Nevertheless, even when you have "impingement," you can usually walk without a limp or ride a Segway. You will many times have significant problems only when you put the foot in strained dorsiflexion (as an OT must always do when he forcefully pushes off) that it reveals itself. That's why it is commonly referred to as "football ankle."

If the ankle begins to impinge, the problem becomes emergent, much like a knee that begins locking up or giving out. You are correct, I should have not used the word "emergency" as in the type of case where a person is bleeding out and needs to be taken to surgery immediately. I appreciate your comments.
