What are you asking me? Who broke their leg? Oh, [Leon Washington] fucked me in Fantasy last year! Well, I don't know what kind of dog-shit prognosis ESPN gave it, but all he did was break his Fib-N'-Tib. I know that sounds gruesome at first blush, and for Johnny American it would be, but this guy belongs to the NFL; he will have top medical treatment. I would be surprised if he had any pain left in his leg at this point...A layman would say he had a "rod" put in his leg, but in reality an internal fixator is a thin piece of titanium...Speed loss? A fibula isn't a ligament jack ass, once the bones heal, it's solid: no weakening of structure, no loss of strength. Any lessening of speed would be purely from atrophy, and he would regain it through training.

Dr. Jon Hobson, orthopedic surgeon, on the nature of Leon Washington's injury, via my phone's Voice Memos. I asked him about it over a beer at Jake's Crawfish. Thought you fellas might want to hear it.
