Football is a sport that so many people love. It is a unique sport that showcases the best athletes in the world. They exhibit speed, strength, and athleticism on the highest level, but the game at many times is unforgiving. Week in and week out players get hurt. Some player's injuries are not as severe, and others can be possibly career-ending. This past week we saw many stars getting hurt. Including one of the best running backs in the NFL. Nick Chubb for the 2nd time in his career has suffered a dislocated knee. It’s the same knee that he dislocated back in 2015 while he was just a sophomore at Georgia University. Dr. Grant Garcia discusses the severity of the injury and the difficulty of getting back to playing at the highest level of sport. The challenges of repairing this injury, especially considering the damage that had been done to the knee previously.
Aaron Rodgers was the biggest story in sports this entire football offseason. The trade that gave NY Jets fans hope that they may win a championship that has eluded that fan base for the last 54 years. On the biggest stage with a crowd that was absolutely electrifying his season ended after 4 plays. Aaron Rodgers reached out to renowned orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Dr. ElAttrache has performed surgeries on Tom Brady, Connor McGregor, and so many other athletes. DR. ElAttrache placed an internal brace called an Achilles “speed bridge” on Rodgers’ torn Achilles. Dr. Grant Garcia describes the procedure, he discusses how and why the repair gives him a chance to heal quicker, but would it heal fast enough to get Rodgers back on the field?
