American Football is one of the biggest and most brutal contact sports. Every year we come across athletes who have to face surgeries and other treatments for their injuries. Jalen Ramsey is now the newest addition to the list. Following a meniscus injury, the Miami Dolphins cornerback might have to take a six to eight-week absence from the game, which is not a piece of good news.
According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, post the injury, it is highly likely that Ramsey will require a full meniscus repair. As a result, this can affect his return time considerably. Right now, the whole situation depends on the Doctors, as they can release an official statement only after the nature of the injury is fully understood.
Sources claim the doctors are exploring two possible solutions, trimming the meniscus or simply removing it. The first procedure is the likeliest of the two options and can bring the cornerback back by September 10, just in time for the Dolphins’ season opener. However, if the doctors decide to remove the meniscus, then the healing time for the player can be considerably higher.
Addressing his fans, jalen Ramsey shared a post on social media saying, “I’ll be back on that field stronger than ever… in due time! This SO minor for God’s child! I trust fully & know He got me! Im forever grateful to worship His name! I know my brothers gone hold it down until I’m back tho.”
This would be the athlete’s second meniscus surgery. Previously in 2016, while Ramsey was a rookie, he had to go through a meniscus surgery on his right leg. Back then, he took only six weeks to recover. Therefore, he is hoping for a similar wait time. However, if the wait time is longer, things could prove challenging for the Dolphins.
