ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo

Rory McIlroy (ruptured ankle ligament) has finished top 10 in each of past 4 majors, is only player w/ even 3 top 10s in that stretch

How bad is Rory McIlroy's ankle injury?

ESPN injury analyst Stephania Bell tells Mike & Mike: "It's the most common ligament you can sprain in your ankle. This is your garden variety basketball sprain... He did say total rupture -- a grade 3 -- that would indicate the ligament is completely torn. He's going to have some challenges with pain, swelling, and not only being able to golf, but being able to walk the course." Listen
