For about 15 seconds, Staley thought he'd broken his ankle. He yelled, 'it's broken!' Thankfully he was mistaken. Hilarity ensued
This is one of the most hilarious events in 49er history.
I called it... ankle injuries are some of the most excruciating injuries (at the beginning)... He probably has a bad sprain, which sucks, but much better than a broken ankle.
Well, apparently. He doesn't even have that either. He's basically "fine".
Sprains (not high ankle sprains) are all about pain tolerance. Sometimes you can just tighten your laces a little more and gut it out, and sometimes it feels like cutting your foot off would be a better option. I'ts a pretty common injury in basketball, I've had several. They suck, but it's not lasting (except for the high ankle sprains).

For those who have witnessed many players suffer severe injuries and walk on them, and from personal experience actually playing a game on a broken ankle (hey, Donovan McNabb did that too), I am not ready to say we're in the clear.
Until we know there's no major ligament damage, I don't want to get my hopes up, considering how horrific he was screaming on the field. I got a text from my dad saying it made him flash back to Bryant Young and that horrific Ken Norton incident. Gah, I can't even bear to think about that again
Didn't Norton roll up on to of Richard Dent and injure him too when Dent was here? Norton was like that tiki necklace Bobby Brady found when the family went to Hawaii and when all types of bad sht would happen when he was around wearing it. Norton helped win #5 but dude was a" friendly fire" injury magnet.
I remember that, and the tarantula in the hotel room
