Troy Woolfolk Suffers Dislocated Ankle, Broken Fibula

Confirming the worst fears after Troy Woolfolk suffered “a lower body injury” during practice on Tuesday, reports are now circulating that Woolfolk suffered a broken leg and will miss the 2010 season.

ESPN’s Joe Schad talked to Woolfolk’s high school coach Jim Creech, and passed along the grisly details on Twitter.

Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press also filed a report on Twitter, after talking to Woolfolk’s father, Butch.

Woolfolk has dislocated ankle, had to be reset, and possible ligament damage, according to his father Butch. Decision on surgery will wait.

Surgery is a possibility for Woolfolk, but the swelling has to go down in his ankle before doctors determine if a procedure is necessary.
