Brian Ehlers a junior at Brien McMahon, suffered from an injury on his left leg that he suffered from at practice by getting hit from a hard ground ball. Ehlers isn’t really sure how long it will take to heal. “It could be a couple of weeks at least for the bump to fully go away” said Ehlers.
Surprisingly, Ehlers has been playing with the leg injury but is also suffering with a back strain which is keeping him from playing. His teammates were so shocked about this incident when they have found out one of their star players had been injured.
“All my teammates were speechless about how big and badly bruised my leg was and also about my back being strained” stated Ehlers.
The season is almost coming to an end and Ehlers is very worried if he will be able to play or not. Ehlers’ coach told him not to worry too much about it. He’s been trying to relieve the pain on his leg by heating it and getting it massaged to remove all the blood from under the skin. “Coach told me it wasn’t really a big deal, and to relax the leg and to just let it heal up itself.”
Ehlers has suffered from many injuries over the past two years. Including broken hand, sprained AC joint, a subluxed shoulder, a strained hip flexor, and now dealing with a back strain. “Going through all these injuries, I just hope that I will be able to heal this injury very fast in order to play this season.”
