6-8 weeks.
So what are you thinking... 6-8 weeks?

I've heard from a panel of experts who have are saying anywhere from 3 weeks to career-ending

Re: Sheldon Rankins Injured

When I read "air cast" that is always a broken bone. At least I've never heard of it being used for any other reason. So that was relieving, and of course we have it confirmed now. Far better to have a broken leg than a torn ligament.

I still remember when Bryant Young snapped his leg in half way back in '98, I believe it was. That was gruesome and of course was a much longer recovery period, but he went on to make more pro bowls.

Saints DT Sheldon Rankings out 6-8 weeks (broken fibula): 4/10 Disaster Rating
This is a tough one to grade. On one hand, the Saints received great news when it was revealed that Sheldon Rankins "only" sustained a broken fibula. When he was carted off the practice field, it seemed as though the injury could be much worse. New Orleans feared that its first-round rookie would miss the entire 2016 campaign. On the other hand, this injury could end up being much worse than initially projected.

As it stands now, Rankins is set to be absent just six to eight weeks, meaning his likely return is right after the team's Week 5 bye. However, it's not quite that simple. Steelers Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey missed all of 2015 with the same injury, as he had complications with his recovery. Still, this is better than a torn ACL or Achilles, as Rankins has a chance to play in early October.

Hopefully no complications.
