Sometimes athletes aren’t the same after this injury Dan Leberfeld

Cortland – According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, following a Lisfranc foot injury, some athletes aren’t the same.

“Some athletes never return to their pre-injury levels of sport after these injuries,” according to AAOS. “Despite excellent surgical reduction and fixation, arthritis may occur from the damage to the cartilage. This may result in chronic pain and may require fusion in the future.”

The Jets certainly hope this isn’t the case with WR Santonio Holmes, who suffered this injury last season, and is currently still rehabbing the malady.
