Kyle Rudolph’s injury isn’t good
Last week it looked like the New York Giants may not sign tight end Kyle Rudolph after he underwent a physical and they found that he needs to undergo foot surgery. Of course things worked out and he signed his contract with Big Blue.
Now we have more details on what is going on with his foot.
Dan Duggan of The Athletic says that it looks like Rudolph has a Lisfranc injury to his foot.
As Duggan pointed out, Evan Engram had a similar injury and had surgery at the end of the 2019 season and was ready to go for this past season. So the good news is that it looks like Rudolph shouldn’t miss any time.
Some times a Lisfranc injury can heal on it’s own, but if it’s too severe, surgery is needed. Which is likely why Rudolph never underwent surgery.
It’s interesting that Rudolph went into free agency with this issue because the Giants clearly didn’t know about the severity until they had him undergo a physical.
I’m assuming that Rudolph didn’t know that he needed surgery and maybe didn’t want to go under the knife because it could hurt his chances at getting signed when he did.
Even though this is not a good foot injury to have, he should fine for next season.
