Manchester United defender Phil Jones’ bending ankle against Reading

It initially looked like Jones had gone down to feign injury after catching his opposite number early on during Manchester United’s 2-1 FA Cup win over Reading, but it soon appeared that the young defender was in a great deal of trouble.

The slow motion replays proved this, and were a little sickening. It shows that Jones’ ankles appears to move one way (not exactly twist but rather shift) before then going back the other way. It’s almost as if the bone had given way and the ankle had gone limp, but although he was shaken and appeared on crutches, it seems as if no bones were broken.

Still, that boy does love an injury.
