So... what exactly is a Lisfranc injury?
According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Lisfranc joint complex is a meeting in the arch of the foot of bones and ligaments, particularly the Lisfranc ligament, a possible injury to the region of the foot can be either a fracture, sprain or ligament tear.
The running game is now firmly in the hands of second-year running back James Robinson, who had a surprisingly very, very good season last year. Carlos Hyde will be the primary backup with Devine Ozigbo filling the change-of-pace role.
