Longhorns TE Andrew Beck Out for Season

Tuesday, 05 September 2017 00:00

A broken foot has taken senior Texas Longhorns tight end Andrew Beck out for the season. Initial projections estimated that he’d only miss six to eight weeks. Beck sustained the injury during a non-contact practice event. He will be undergoing surgery for the injury. This isn’t the first time Beck has broken a foot, as he suffered the same injury back in February. While the Longhorns have two freshman tight ends, Cade Brewer and Reese Leitao, Leitao was suspended for the first two games of the season. Yet it is expected that teammate and recent transfer Kendall Moore will take Beck’s place.

Sports Related Foot and Ankle Injuries

Foot and ankle injuries are a common occurrence when it comes to athletes of any sport. While many athletes dismiss the initial aches and pains, the truth is that ignoring potential foot and ankle injuries can lead to serious problems. As athletes continue to place pressure and strain the area further, a mild injury can turn into something as serious as a rupture and may lead to a permanent disability. There are many factors that contribute to sports related foot and ankle injuries, which include failure to warm up properly, not providing support or wearing bad footwear. Common injuries and conditions athletes face, including:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Plantar Fasciosis
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Achilles Tendon Rupture
  • Ankle Sprains

Sports related injuries are commonly treated using the RICE method. This includes rest, applying ice to the injured area, compression and elevating the ankle. More serious sprains and injuries may require surgery, which could include arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery. Rehabilitation and therapy may also be required in order to get any recovering athlete to become fully functional again. Any unusual aches and pains an athlete sustains must be evaluated by a licensed, reputable medical professional.
