In the last game of 2013, the New York Giants’ Eli Manning sustained a high ankle sprain. He was hit by a defensive on the opposing team and his leg twisted as he fell to the ground. He continued to play in the first half of the game but opted to sit out for the second half. He left the stadium wearing a boot and using crutches.
Football is a dangerous sport and injuries are plentiful. In early November, the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers suffered a collarbone fracture. The collarbone, also known as the clavicle, behaves as a strut for the shoulder that allows the arm to move freely.
