Most Notable Breaks and Tears in Sports & Entertainment

Here are your most recent, most notable breaks and tears in the sports and entertainment world.  We are wishing them all a cheerful, speedy recovery.  Feel Better, Heal Better!

In Football:

J.D. Walton

Denver Broncos center J.D. Walton has been lost for the season due to a broken ankle and is scheduled to have surgery.  A 6’3”, 605 lb offensive lineman, Walton was carted off the field after an opposing player rolled on his ankle while attempting to make a tackle.  He ended up suffering a fractured and dislocated left ankle and is most likely wearing a cast.  He needs a CastCoverZ! Legz! cast cover to prevent scratching, snagging, and irritation of surrounding skin while wearing a cast!

St. Louis Rams receiver Danny Amendola suffered a dislocated clavicle attempting a diving catch. First thought was that he had broken his shoulder, then collarbone, but we now know it was much more serious.  Instead of popping out, the clavicle popped in and could have killed him, coming within millimeters from puncturing his trachea and aorta.  Because they have not seen this type of injury before, it is unknown when he will return.  Our Slingz! arm sling will help keep his arm stabilized and he’ll look good too!

Cincinnati Bengals running back Bernard Scott is out for the season with an injured left knee.  His knee bent awkwardly as he was tackled.  Details have yet to officially be released, but Scott did indicate to his teammates that it was likely a serious ligament tear.  Depending on whether he is wearing a brace or cast, he definitely needs our Tubez! knee brace cover or Legz! cast cover in “Bengalicious” fabric!

The undefeated Houston Texans were extremely disappointed when they lost middle linebacker Brian Cushing due to a left knee injury.  Cushing will be undergoing further testing to determine if he tore his anterior cruciate ligament.

Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson will reportedly be out  for 8 weeks with a Lisfranc injury, which occurs when  bones in the mid-foot are broken or supporting ligaments are torn.  If he requires surgery, he could miss the rest of the season.  In the meantime, he is wearing a walking boot.  He needs a Bootz! to cover that ugly boot with style!

In Baseball: 

Boston Red Sox starting second baseman Dustin Pedroia will be having surgery this week on a torn ligament in his right pinky finger.  He has been playing with the injury since July 29.  Gutterz! Is the answer to cover up casted or bandaged fingers.

In Entertainment:

One Direction

One Direction singer Niall Horan had surgery to fix torn ligaments in his knee, which was caused by a run-in he had with a furry-tailed squirrel in a London park.  Although crutches are a pain to use, Horan is doing and feeling much better!  He should be sporting some CastCoverZ! designer color crutches with comfy Crutchwear covers to ease his pain and look stylin’ while hobbling around.
