Olympic Champ Burroughs Has Broken Ankle

Postby Allen Brown » Thu Sep 12, 2013 7:36 pm

^^Sources are telling WR.com staff that Jordan Burroughs has a broken ankle. Thus, one would assume looks like Kid Dynamite might be competing this week at the World Championships. -Allen (WR.com)

Incredible.

First of all, I really feel for Burroughs if this is true - really sucks to have something like this happen so close to an event of this magnitude.

Any word on just how serious a break it is? I can't imagine this would be something where he could still compete, and furthermore, doubt it would be wise to do so even if possible. But still, lots we don't know...

here's a picture of Burroughs in Hungary. Doesn't look like his ankle is broken.

Suppose he could still be injured though. It would be quite the elaborate ruse at this point if he doesn't wrestle.

Jason Bryant saying no broke ankle - But also not saying he is perfectly fine.

Ankle looks pretty good in this video...

Looks like the WR.com "staff" needs to do a better job of fact checking before initiating/spreading rumors.

Here's coach Mark Manning's interview at weigh-ins:

Looks like Burroughs is a go, but Manning does acknowledge that there was an injury - "We'll talk about that more after the tournament".

In the meantime, I do hope JB is on top of his game!

I am going to go with severe sprain or hairline fracture, that's been going on for a little while now.

WR Staff vindicated:

http://twitter.com/USAWrestling - "Jordan Burroughs broke his ankle less than a month ago and had surgery the next day before coming back to wrestle here!"

Unbelievable!

Evidently had surgery, competed with a metal plate and five screws. Unreal.
