Pro Football Doc Podcast: Week 4

As we head into week four of the 2018 NFL season injuries are starting to pile up. Should Aaron Rodgers be expected to make it through the season considering his previous injuries? Is Garoppolo's injury serious? how long should I expect a player in my fantasy league to be out if they're on injured reserve? 

Dr. David Chao's Pro Football Doc Podcast breaks down everything the common fan needs to know about ACL tears, concussions, and other injuries in the NFL.

Dr. Chao, an internationally known sports medicine expert, has been practicing orthopedic surgery in San Diego, California for the past 17 years at OASIS, Orthopedic Surgery Sports Medicine. He is the former head team physician for the San Diego Chargers (1997-2013), where he specializes in orthopedic sports injuries. He has also served as Chief Medical Officer for more than two dozen Summer and Winter X Games, team physician for the USA Sevens Rugby team, medical consultant for WWE, host physician for the U.S. Olympic committee and has consulted with the NBA, MLB, and NHL Players.  Dr. Chao attended Harvard before receiving his medical degree from Northwestern School of Medicine at Chicago.

In National Football Post's previous incarnation Dr. David Chao had a column on sports injuries called Monday Morning MD. He opined about everything from how injury decisions are made, that all meniscus tears are not the same, to when to play or sit a player in his article Smart to Sit.

 

In this episode of the Pro Football Doc Podcast, Dr. Chao interviews NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Dr. Chao also breaks down injuries from Week 3 in the NFL and takes a few followers questions from Twitter.
