Carson Wentz Foot Fracture bone removal

Dr. Matt Provencher here. Carson was told that a bone fragment has broken off in his ankle/foot from what looks to have been a previous fracture. This piece is now floating around, and he was presented with two options. The first was a non-operative route including managing pain and symptoms and playing this year from week one with the understanding that it could worsen and cause the need for surgery later this season. The second option was surgery. Though more invasive it is also the most predictive in terms of outcomes. This involves surgically removing the bone fragment. Rehab includes allowing the incision to heal, swelling to decrease, and slowly returning him to the field as he regains the strength and mobility needed to be effective on Sundays. Carson and the medical staff chose surgery thus keeping him out for the first 5-12 weeks. Most likely he will be ready to play on the earlier side of that spectrum at around 5-6 weeks. Surgery or not this injury would have slowed him down. When he returns, we can see it taking him 2-3 weeks to get back to the Carson he was prior to the injury but overall, he will return at a high level from this. We only hope that he can stay healthy as he seems to find himself in the training room more than he would like.
