Video: Horrific Sheffield United’s Chris Basham Injury in Game Against Fulham

Chris Basham Injury

Premier League fans were left in shock during the Sheffield United vs Fulham FC match as Chris Basham suffered a gruesome ankle injury that has sent shockwaves throughout the football community. The incident forced Basham to be subbed off the field, and the severity of his injury is deeply concerning.

Medical Assessment

Video footage of the incident has raised concerns about an ankle fracture/dislocation, with signs of an open fracture where the bone pierced the skin. While there is hope that there is no nerve or artery damage, it’s clear that Basham faces a long and challenging road to recovery. The expected return to play (RTP) is estimated at 6-12 months, but the presence of an open fracture significantly increases the RTP duration due to the risk of infection.

The graphic nature of the injury brings back memories of former Arsenal player Eduardo Silva, who suffered a similar open fracture during a Premier League game against Birmingham City many years ago, taking a year to return to the pitch. At 35, Basham’s football career appears to be in jeopardy.

Career Uncertainty

It’s heartbreaking to witness such a devastating injury, especially at Basham’s age. Many are skeptical about the possibility of him making a successful comeback. However, if he manages to return to even a half-decent level, it will be a testament to his resilience and determination.

Tim Ream, the American professional soccer player from Fulham, showed great sportsmanship by tending to Basham before he was taken to the ambulance, earning well-deserved praise for his actions.
