An Update On Eric Decker's Injury

Dustin MaulContributor IAugust 11, 2010

It was a scary sight.

The 6-foot-2, 215 pound rookie prospect out of the University of Minnesota left the  Saturday evening session at Invesco field limping.

Many fans waited anxiously to see what was wrong with their new receiver, as Steve Annanpolis took off Decker's shoe.

Many fans, myself included, were worried that Decker had aggrivated his Lisfranic sprain that had ended his collegiate career last October.

For those who do not know what it is, a Lisfranc fracture is a fracture and dislocation of the joints in the midfoot, where a cluster of small bones forms an arch on top of the foot between the ankle and the toes. It's a very painful injury, to say the least.

But I come bearing good news. According to Fox 31's Josiana Anderson, the MRI did not show an aggravation of his Lisfranc fracture.

At this point, it appears that Decker is rehabbing the pre-existing high ankle sprain that was aggravated in last Saturday's practice.

While I do not like to see him injured, the Denver Broncos have definitely dodged a bullet. This injury is not nearly as bad as it could have been.

Where can I comment?
