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.

Here is a good read on Rankins, his rehab & healing process.

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.

The thing that surprises me most is that Sean Payton is actually talking to the media about it.

Something has him in a GREAT mood, and I hope it's this defense.

RIP Matt Ryan, visitation will be Sept. 26th and Jan. 1st.

I broke my pinky finger in High School. I was unable to play College ball or Pro ball after that.

No worries... so long as you can Swiffer, you're good to go!

Re: Sheldon Rankins Injured

I don't think the Failclowns or Panthers have dealt with a single starter getting injured yet. Tampa is dealing with JR Sweezy being out for a little while but otherwise we seem to have the least luck this offseason.
