Creek said his latest injury happened in the stairwell of his apartment complex. "It was just a slip and a fall, a fall on a stair," he said. "I took a stair wrong and as I was coming down on my left foot, the back of my foot just snapped. There was nothing I could do about it. It was just a freak accident."
Creek said he initially thought he had sprained his ankle but as the pain grew worse he grew more concerned.
"I'm looking at it from the mind-set of 'it happened, it's not the end of the world and I'll be back soon,' '' Creek said. "I can't put my head down. I have to take it one step at a time."
