United Regional athletic trainer Jeremy Woodward on playing football with a cast:
One of the things you always want to do is before you participate with a cast is inspect the cast to assure it doesn't have any defects and the integrity of the cast is doing what it is supposed to and no sharp edges to worry about.
And then all we have to do is keep everything wrapped up, covered up and just follow the rules.
Anytime there is an injury and you go back and play while injured there is an increased chance of injury.
