PLAYERS: Mckayla Maroney
Olympic champion McKayla Maroney is still grounded. Maroney says her right foot will be in a boot for another four to five weeks, and she'll need the stabilizer on her left leg for a few more weeks after that. Maroney had two screws ''the size of my nose'' inserted in her left tibia last month to repair a fracture, which occurred when she fell on her uneven bars dismount during the second stop of a 40-city gymnastics tour. She had a second surgery about a week later to repair a break in her right big toe, which she aggravated at the London Olympics. Maroney is on crutches, and says it's ''kind of annoying'' because she must keep her left leg straight and can only put weight on her heel.

  • I certainly can understand all that Mckayla is going through, especially since she is an athlete. I am 75 years old and was a competitive figure skater. I hurt my ankle and had to be off the ice for a few months. It isn't fun, and one worries about the training schedule.

    I will pray for Mckaylas healing and hope she is getting better very quickly. Love to her..................
