Rory McIlroy Ruptures Ankle Ligament Playing Soccer


Injuries off the field are certainly common occurrences, although they can often be devastating. They can often come from surprising reasons. Top-ranked Irish golfer Rory McIlroy announced on Instagram that he ruptured a ligament in his ankle while playing soccer with some friends. The picture shows him with a large boot around his left leg and crutches for both arms.

With the British Open set to start on July 16, McIlroy still seems poised to make a run at it. He stated that he has already begun rehab and will be evaluating the injury each day. McIlroy won last year’s British Open and will look to defend his title if he is healthy enough to play.
