Auburn Commit Wilkins Lost For Season

Auburn running back commitment Jordan Wilkins will miss the rest of his senior season at St. Benedict High School in Cordova, Tenn., after he suffered a major injury on Friday night.

Wilkins broke the tibula and tore a ligament in his right leg, according to a tweet from his mother, Angie Wilkins. Jordan Wilkins is expected to have surgery on Tuesday, according to his mother.

“It’s serious,” St. Benedict coach Mike David told AuburnUndercover.com. “Our hearts go out to him. He’s an incredible player and it’s really not the way we wanted his season to end. He’s made a huge impact on our program.

“He’s just a great kid and to have that happen is just heart-breaking.”

Wilkins, the No. 7 all-purpose back in the nation according to 247Sports, rushed for 1,041 yards and 14 touchdowns in his senior season.

Excuse me, but where in the body is the "tibula" bone?  I'm not familiar with that bone.  I know all of the other 212 bones.  Could this be the missing 213th?

Feel better?  

 

Wilkins mother wrote on her Facebook page: "Jordan broke his tibula and tore a ligament he will probably have surgery Tuesday."  

I'm guessing she hit the wrong key when trying to type "fibula."  Josh, in rushing to get you your free news simply reported what she said and what else has been reported.

 @John at MrSEC  I actually kinda assumed that after I posted my comment.  Sorry about that--medical guy here.  I always get peeved when reports misuse medical terms like "strained" and "sprained." 

I'll come back off of the ledge now.  Keep up the good work!

Interesting.  I'll try to remember that from here on out.

 

Thanks again for reading,

 @John at MrSEC You "strain" a muscle or tendon.  You "sprain" a ligament.  Feel free to contact me anytime with medical related questions.

No worries.

 

Now -- to prevent you from getting on my case in the future -- what IS the difference between a strain and a sprain?  I thought they were two ways of saying the same thing.  I'll have to hit a medical website or two apparently.

 

Thanks in advance,

John
