Leonard Fournette Announces A Serious Foot Injury

December 26th, 2022


Playoff Lenny has a bum wheel. And that’s why he may not be peak Playoff Lenny.

Earlier this morning, the Bucs running back, off his best all-around performance with Tampa Bay, 162 yards from scrimmage last night in an overtime win over the sad Cardinals, apparently got frustrated with folks hounding him on Twitter and set people straight.

Playoff Lenny has since deleted his tweet but not before the gang at Outkick.com got a screenshot.

A Lisfranc injury is a nasty injury that either means broken bones in the foot or torn ligaments. Here is how ClevelandClinic.com describes it. Joe knows it is very painful.

A Lisfranc fracture is a type of broken foot. Like all fractures, the treatments you’ll need and your recovery time will depend on the severity of your original injury. You might need surgery. Most people need to wear a cast or boot for six to 12 weeks, and it can take a year or more to return to intense exercise like running.

And Playoff Lenny has been playing football on this! And when a running back has a bum wheel, that takes a toll.

The fact Playoff Lenny is battling this injury and had the night he had last night speaks to his drive and desire.

    In Lenny we trust! Keep chugging big dog!

  2. sasquatch Says:

    Didn’t Lavonte have a Lisfranc at the end of last season and took all offseason to recover from it?

  3. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Not sure why he publicized this…seems a bit thin skinned but I certainly applaud his extreme effort.

  4. AlexC727 Says:

    With this known, why did he outsnap R. White? Are the coaches insane?

  5. Mike Johnson Says:

    Lenny always gives you what he got. He plays hard. If only we had a few more with the heart, he has.

  6. TexasBuc 1976 Says:

    Lenny gives it his all, props.

  7. BucsfanFred Says:

    I can’t take any more good news.

  8. Dan in largo Says:

    Is nfl going to look into this undisclosed injury?

  9. JimmyfromNY Says:

    Inagine Brady ever came out to the media in 2020 and told everyone he had a torn ligament in his knee? The Brady trolls would be eating him up. Lenny you’ve lost a step you don’t have acceleration stop blaming it on a foot injury.

  10. EA Says:

    Dang everyone is hurt. When is Brady gonna come out and announce his injury, definitely not the same guy that played against the cowboys to start the season.

  11. brooks Says:

    Trade him

  12. Smashsquatch Says:

    Impressive if true. But what’s the severity? Also, I didn’t realize you need to be in perfect health to maintain a good playing weight. He looks like an OL at RB. The foot injury does explain his tiny stutter steps before each change of direction. Finally, how baffling is Bowles’ power running approach with a one legged back hadling most of the work? Talk about square peg and round holes.

  13. NEfan Says:

    Coaching 101, ya let’s run Lenny more until he can’t run no more. The incompetence grows daily. Why not work Vaughn & White last night. Maybe they’re saving White for the PLAYOFF!

  14. Goatfarmer Says:

    Lenny haters suck eggs. This has been the case since Dallas.

  15. D-Rok Says:

    If true about this injury, he’s one tough dude. As others have pointed out, why would the coaches allow him to play this way? Unless playing on it wouldn’t have made it any worse.

  16. Anonymous Says:

    Trade Lenny. Draft Bijan Robinson.

  17. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Just proof that the team is not quitting.

    They are trying their best for the most part…but with all of the backups we have playing, the talent isn’t there. It’s got to be frustrating to the regular starters.

    Basically, we have scrubs playing in keep positions, especially on the Oline.

  18. Anonymous Says:

    Trade him. Draft Bijan Robinson.

  19. SOEbuc Says:

    Trade. Draft Bijan Robinson.

  20. Frank Pillow Says:

    Lenny is not the problem. Not even close. Dude has earned respect. There’s zero creativity happening on offense. None. At this point any positive yards is a miracle.

  21. Just Saying Says:

    Seems to reinforce the idea that the coaches are incompetent. If your RB has a broken foot why keep using him when you have other healthy options. Vaughn should have been getting playing time for weeks.

  22. Rod Munch Says:

    Lots of idiots around who think the Bucs RB’s are the issue, and not the awful, predictable, garbage playcalling.

    Lenny has been fine, but it’s also clear that White has a lot more juice. Still, like any good modern team, you need and want two good RBs, and the Bucs have those. What they don’t have is a real NFL OC, one with more than 5 plays in his playbook.

  23. Yucs2Bucsr Says:

    Wow so him being out of shape has nothing to do with his drop off and now it’s his foot ? Still not sure why they take White out who’s obviously their best back and then goes missing because Lenny needs his touches and is very thin skinned !! What players disclose their injury to a tee just because fans think you aren’t that good minus 2020 playoff run and then the Glazers got suckered by giving him and others a bag. Dean, SMB, and other FAs won’t be back next year because they know the Den of Depression is coming and won’t know part of it

  24. JimmyfromNY Says:

    You guys are such fraud some of you if Brady ever came out and talked about an injury and why he’s not playing well you people would destroy him . At least be consistent.. Even going back to last year he’s lost a step, zero Explosion. Doesn’t have great vision and add a minimum is questionable as a good teammate. He’s a big baby.

  25. kyle Hoge Says:

    lenny saved the bucs arse last night

  26. The Anomaly Says:

    Why is he playing?


    Ou r staff is completely clueless

  27. Hodad Says:

    So Lenny has a bum foot, and Lefty runs him three times right at J.J. Watt trying to pick up a yard for a 1st down. Brilliant!

  28. Oxycondoms Says:

    Not a dr but he probably got lisfranc due to being out off shape /overweight. That being said props to him playing hurt

  29. Chuck Stevens Says:

    NE fan,

    There running Lenny hard because Rachud white who has all the skills has no acceleration to the holes and is very tentative .
    If he ever breaks through and has about five steps to get rolling,he probably won’t get caught .

  30. steele Says:

    Credit to him for gutting it out. But Lenny at 110%, at his career best, is still not a great feature back and definitely not a power back with any kind of explosiveness.

  31. Crickett Baker Says:

    I think Lenny is great. What gnaws at me is that he is reading the drivel that mindless people are spewing about him. It is sad that he feels he needs to defend himself when he has been a “rock” for us. Hope you get well, Lenny. I think you are a terrific player and should not take personally what certain idiots think. Be confident!
