Editor’s note: Kansas City Chiefs head athletic trainer and VP of sports medicine and performance Rick Burkholder provided updates on Eric Berry Bashaud Breeland Jersey , Daniel Sorensen and Byron Pringle on Wednesday. Our in-house medical expert, Aaron Borgmann, provides further interpretation here.S Eric BerryNot a lot to interpret here. Seems as if there have been good days with progress based upon what we have been told. Every injury has its own characteristics and heel injuries can be tricky. Based upon what we have been told, it sounds as if things are moving in the right direction and we may see the player practice at some point soon, but as with anything, every day brings new challenges and hurdles to jump through.S Daniel Sorensen As we discussed at the time of surgery, the minimum time to expect bone healing is six weeks, and that’s what we see here. Since it has been stated that he has been placed on IR, the NFL mandates that this designation requires the player misses eight games Anthony Sherman Jersey , as was eluded to by general manager Brett Veach earlier as well. That’s not to say that the player cannot be deemed ready prior to that, but by rule, he cannot play before that. Don’t expect to see this player prior to that mark. If he is doing well, expect to see him rejoin practice at that point and re-acclimate to those activities before being cleared to play. More decisions will be made at that time.S Byron PringleIt’s always an interesting case when you go looking for one specific injury and find another one—in this case, searching for the degree of hamstring injury and finding and unrelated medical situation, an inguinal hernia. A fairly common condition in the public, less so in my experience in athletes, inguinal hernias come in various types and forms and timelines for recovery vary based upon the procedure performed, so we will have to wait for more information on this condition going forward. We can assume from the quotes made earlier today that the hamstring condition is considered milder in nature Dustin Colquitt Jersey , but combined with the hernia, enough to warrant IR time.Aaron Borgmann is the founder of Borgmann Rehab Solutions.
