jerseygiantfan Posted November 6, 2006 Share Posted November 6, 2006 Strahan will be on crutches for next week Print Email Blog This Subscribe Jay Glazer / FOXSports.com Posted: 1 hour ago Giants Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Strahan's worst fears did not come true but he also wasn't given the best of news today. Strahan told FOXSports.com on the way back from his mid-morning MRI that doctors have told him he'll be on crutches for at least the next week because of sprained ligaments in his right foot. "They told me anywhere from two to eight weeks, they don't know for sure," said a very somber Strahan, who suffered the injury during the second quarter of the Giants' 14-10 win over the Texans Sunday. "It's really up to how long it takes to heal. It's not torn but it's similar to the injury that I had as a rookie that kept me out for several weeks." Strahan has been told to keep off his foot for at least the next week and doctors will take another look at the foot after the Bears game next Sunday. "They said the way I got it I was lucky because if I injured it by someone coming down on the back of my heel, that would have been much worse," he said. "I guess we'll just have to wait and see how fast I can come back from this. I want to get back in there as soon as I can." The Bears-Giants matchup will certainly be without one star due to a foot injury and now we may have to wait a little to see if it will be without another. Brian Urlacher told FOXSports.com that an MRI this morning showed he too has a sprained ligament. Unlike Strahan, however, Urlacher sounds like he's planning to play in Week 10. "If it's up to me I will," Urlacher said. "They told me it all depends on how much pain I can take. I can deal with that." TOP STORIES Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
