So in my game, I jumped OVER a tackle but landed on ankle incorrectly and now have a sprained ankle. It has swollen up to about 3 times the size of my other foot and is all bruised black and blue.
I have now been told I will be out for 3 weeks, I am actually really depressed about this as footy is pretty much my life, other than work.
I am doing everything I can. I am wearing a brace on it at all times. I sleep with it propped up on a pile of pillows. When I get home from work I ice it and then tape it up.
When I am back playing I think I will continue taping it for the rest of the season.

Darn! Sprained can be a real pain in the butt. Particularly when one's as active as you are. I had it a few years back, and it really wore my patience out!

I am actually finding it very depressing not being able to play or even go for a run . At least it doesn't stop me from working, I would go stir crazy.

Glad you can still work man, hope it heals fast.

Sorry to hear that. Bummer. Good idea keeping the ankle taped for the rest of the season.

Oh, daaaaaaang! I HATE when that happens. Sounds like you're doing everything right to get it healed quickest. I feel for you, especially at the beginning of your season. Hope you're back on the field soon with no more mishaps to mar your season!

First game back tonight. Fingers crossed. Hoping the only pain I feel is the ripping off of the tape from my ankles after the game.
