Six months after gruesome injury, Phillip Adams running, cutting

Fans who saw the ankle injury suffered by 49ers defensive back Phillip Adams in the December game against the Rams won’t soon forget it: The way Adams’ ankle bent while his foot was pinned under a Rams player made it one of the ugliest injuries of the NFL season.

So it’s pleasantly surprising to hear, less than six months later, that Adams is making a quick recovery.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that Adams is ahead of schedule in healing from the broken left ankle. Agent Scott Casterline says Adams is already running and cutting, the broken bone is healing and surgical screws have been removed.

Team doctors are allowed to monitor injured players during the lockout, and the 49ers’ medical staff has remained in contact with Adams. As bad as that December injury looked, Adams may be ready to go whenever the lockout ends and offseason work resumes.

    Phillip is doing fine according to his Mom, and she wants everyone to stop calling him by his childhood nickname “Gruesome”.
