The Latest on Odell Beckham Jr



A high ankle sprain, also known as a syndesmotic sprain, is a sprain of the syndesmotic ligaments that connect the tibia and fibula in the lower leg, thereby creating a mortise and tenon joint for the ankle. High ankle sprains are described as high because they are located above the ankle.



You can see the ligaments pictured here that are affected in Odell, which is going to be a huge issue for planting and cutting and likely affect his speed for the next 6-8 weeks. He is going to be a game time decision for the next 6 weeks at least, and even if he is going to play, I would avoid him for his first few games because he is sounding too desperate to get back out there and help the team. Typical athlete mentality, which you want to see in a competitor, but the body will still need time to heal. So Start at Your Own Risk!
