Summary

"If it was literally four weeks or more down the road, five or six weeks down the road, there’s probably no chance he’d be able to play" at the World Cup, Provencher said of Robinson, adding that getting the surgery done immediately was imperative. The Boston area native has worked with baseball’s Red Sox and hockey’s Bruins, and he was the New England Patriots' chief physician when they won the Super Bowl in 2014.He said basketball players are perhaps most susceptible to Achilles injuries because of the hard court on which they play and the constant jumping required.Provencher also said soccer players tend to recover from Achilles injuries particularly well. "When you look at all the MLS statistics and all the other professional leagues around the world in soccer, after an Achilles tear, that first year back, they’re pretty good," he said."What we do see down the road is the players tend to tail off a little bit, meaning that after an Achilles tear, you may not enjoy as long of a career as you would’ve liked," he continued.
