Muhammad Wilkerson taken to hospital after suffering ankle injury

Muhammad Wilkerson was looking to get his once-promising career back on track with the Green Bay Packers this season, but he suffered an injury during Sunday’s game that appeared to be quite serious.

Wilkerson collided with a teammate in the second quarter of Green Bay’s game against the Washington Redskins, and he appeared to be in serious pain. The training staff immediately put his ankle in an air cast before carting him off the field. Wilkerson was later taken to the hospital.

You hate to speculate about an injury, but it is never a good sign when a player needs to be immediately taken to the hospital. Wilkerson was seen in tears as he left the field, which would indicate that the injury was not a minor one.

Wilkerson was released by the Jets this offseason after he became something of a headache for the organization. He had just eight sacks in his final two seasons with New York after recording a career-high 12 sacks in 2015.
