We have an update on Reggie Ragland’s injury. Kind of.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network tweeted the following on Bills’ rookie linebacker:
#Bills LB Reggie Ragland, who injured his knee, had an inconclusive MRI, source said. He's seeing more docs and getting 2nd opinion Monday.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 6, 2016
Ragland left practice Friday after what Chris Brown of the team’s official website said he ‘‘appeared to step on the foot of the ball carrier causing his left knee to buckle.’’
David J. Chao, an orthopedist and former NFL head team doctor, sent out a few tweets on this report.
Contrary to public opinion, MRI is often inconclusive.— David J. Chao, MD (@ProFootballDoc) August 6, 2016
Why I say no substitute for exam in hands of good orthopod. https://t.co/amHL9jebXt
Not necessarily out of the woods yet but better than a definitive need for IR. https://t.co/d44HBu2Tw3— David J. Chao, MD (@ProFootballDoc) August 6, 2016
Looks like we’ll have to wait until Monday -- at the earliest — to get a definitive word on the severity of Ragland’s injury.
