NFL Scouting Combine Medicals discover a First Round talent from Alabama has a Jones Fracture

On the day Caleb Williams the star quarterback and projected first round pick rejects the medicals at the NFL Scouting Combine, the medicals prove to come through for NFL teams.

A star Alabama football player and first round prospect Kool-Aid McKinstry ended up having a Jones Fracture through the medical exam.

A Jones fracture is a specific type of fracture that occurs in the fifth metatarsal bone of the foot. The fifth metatarsal bone is located on the outside of the foot and connects to the pinky toe. Jones fractures typically happen in a specific area of the bone called the metaphyseal-diaphyseal junction, which is the region where the shaft of the bone meets the base.

These fractures are often caused by an acute injury, such as rolling the ankle or trauma to the foot. They can also occur due to repetitive stress on the bone, such as overuse or repetitive impact activities like running or jumping.

Jones fractures are notorious for being slow to heal due to the limited blood supply to the area where the fracture occurs. Without adequate blood flow, the bone’s healing process can be impaired, leading to delayed healing or even nonunion (when the broken ends of the bone fail to heal together).

The good thing is he is going to get it fixed and should be ready by training camp.
