Sheldon is in good hands & will be back to sacking the QB in no time .

Re: Sheldon Rankins Injured

So he might be back after the bye week. The good things with broken bones is that if that is the only injurie, no ligaments or anything it usually heals and then you are fine and ready to go.

6-8 weeks.
there's a lot of people on this board who have either never played football,
nor broken anything big. You're not really jumping up and down, and you
really dont feel like mashing it up, when the cast first comes off... You feel
more like you've just landed on another planet, and you're lucky, if you can
move the limb a fraction of its normal range.

Hopefully, he'll heal fast, but Im just being real.

Well I broke my fibula AND dislocated my foot playing football back in 2009. I went to a national team camp and competed for a spot a mere 8 weeks later and I had nowhere near the quality of rehab that Rankins will have access to.
I was walking without a cast 2½ weeks after the injury happened.

Everybody heals differently but if he "only" had a broken fibula and no other damage I am very optimistic about his recovery.
