Muhammad Wilkerson’s season ended during the Green Bay Packers’ loss to Washington in week 3. Wilkerson suffered what was described as a significant ankle injury.
His ankle was fractured and he’s now had two surgeries on it. Wilkerson had surgery in Washington after being carted off the field. Then he had a second surgery on Tuesday.
It was initially thought the injury could be career-ending. The good news — probably the only good news here — is that it won’t. Wilkerson will make a full recovery.
#Packers DL Mo Wilkerson had surgery yesterday on his fractured ankle that knocked him out for 2018, source said. Dr. Robert Anderson informed him he’d make a full recovery, which is great news. Prior to the operation, there was some question about how it would affect his career.

The Packers put Wilkerson on injured reserve last week. He could have played his last game for the Packers. Wilkerson was playing on a one-year deal.
Wilkerson sent this photo out after the second surgery.
Heckuva job Bricey! I hope Fackrell destroys your knee by accident…
Sad for Mo. I really likes him. Best to him.
