From Virginia Zakas’ latest column, on Ja’Marr Chase:
Leg hyperextension is extra an outline of how an harm happens than a analysis. It means the leg excessively straightens, and this will put stress on surrounding muscular tissues and ligaments within the leg. In Chase’s case the preliminary hip harm occurred when his knee hyperextended, placing an excessive amount of stress close to the hip and inflicting a stress fracture. Chase didn’t point out the torn labrum, however that is probably a part of what he’s coping with as effectively.
Chase is trending in the proper route after being sidelined for the previous six weeks. He continues to be restricted at apply however clearly isn’t 100% but. I stand by my preliminary perception that it’ll take eight-plus weeks to completely heal, and offseason surgical procedure should still be wanted to restore the labrum injury. Chase is such participant that even when he’s on a snap rely he will be efficient sufficient to begin in fantasy lineups, however don’t anticipate him to be the identical participant for a minimum of a number of extra weeks.
