Report: Doctors are fighting to save Giants Daniel Fells’s foot

new-york-giants-daniel-fells-foot-surgeryThe New York Giants have dealt with a lot of bad injury luck that began during the off-season. We all know about the story with defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul getting some of his fingers amputated. Paul still hasn’t played in a game this season and there is no timetable for his return. Now the Giants are dealing with another situation that went from moderate to very serious in a week. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, doctors are fighting to save tight end Daniel Fells’s foot.

Fells has been hospitalized for more than a week as he battles a persistent Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection that necessitated being placed in the Intensive Care Unit on Friday. He’s since been moved to a private room to have a nurse focus solely on his care.

Fells has had five surgeries, according to a person with knowledge of his condition. More are coming, as doctors try to stave off further infection. As of Saturday night, they were fighting to save his foot, which is at risk given the nature of the infection.

He was placed on Injured Reserve this week, and it remains to be seen if he’ll ever play again.

This is just very sad to hear because this could not only cut his career short, this could change everything in his life. Hopefully doctors won’t have to amputate Fells’s foot and he makes a full recovery.
