Soccer's Ward Sidelined With Broken Metatarsal

English soccer player Danny Ward of Huddersfield Town had been out for five games with a knee injury and illness and was looking forward to getting back to playing the game.
But the 21-year-old Ward broke a metatarsal during a warm-up to the Championship game at Vicarage Road. Manager Simon Grayson confirmed after Saturday's 4-0 defeat that, "On his return from injury, Danny Ward caught his foot in training and after going for an X-ray it revealed that he has fractured metatarsal, which is going to rule him out for six to eight weeks."
Ward has been a regular starter for the Terriers and made 23 appearances before injuring his knee at Christmas time. This injury is particularly frustrating for Grayson, who has been facing pressure that he is not suited to manage the team.
"We were working to have Danny back in the side... (and his injury) is a setback both for the club and the player," said Grayson.

  1. it is likely to crack. This normally occurs in healthy and fit individuals who subject their body to excess physical activities. This kind of fracture is normally experienced by sportspersons and military recruits who engage in physical activities for long periods of time. They develop a stress fracture that leads to foot pain. The second situation is where people have extremely weak bones. This commonly affects women with osteoporosis.
