Thank god. Pathetic that a season ending injury is still considered good news because it isn't potentially career altering lol

Long read, but if you want to learn about cuboid bones and fractures

What I get out of it, is its very rare to happen so of course it would happen to Kittle...smdh

Sadly his play style is unsustainable. He's quickly becoming a premature Gronk.
Keep him out til next year. Build towards the future

In an earlier life, I had some exposure to the function of this bone. It is not weight-bearing, so that is good, however, it serves an important function in maintaining proper alignment of the lateral (outside) portion of the foot. It is an odd-shaped bone, and necessarily so, in order to do its job. A small fracture may result in misalignment that results in performance issues. Think of it as having the front wheels of your car misaligned - the car will not drive straight.

Glad it wasn't a Jones fracture.

Seems for the average person this is more of an annoyance and may cause more of a drunk balance issue than anything. Or like you said a misalignment ina vehicle. But to Kittle who is an athlete who plants his feet violently, this is more of a problem.
It is a 4 to 6 week recovery time. If we make a playoff push he returns.

I think they said up to eight weeks for this particular break

All I know is medically speaking it is a 4 to 6 week recovery time from that injury I think he's out for the year unless there's a playoff push. say we upset Buffalo and beat the cowboys in Washington all of a sudden we're right in the mix of it he might be ready to go by then along with Jimmy G with no playoff push I don't think either one of them play the rest of season
If we make a playoff push he comes back no doubt
Hurry back healthy, Furious George

I really miss this dude both on & off the field. His media spots are always great.
