Detroit Lions running back Ameer Abdullah revealed that he suffered a Lisfranc injury in September, causing him to miss what was left of the 2016 season.

Abdullah reflected on his season-ending ailment while appearing on Adam Carriker’s podcast, “The Carriker Chronicles.”

“I ended up tearing my Lisfranc the second game of the season against the Tennessee Titans, separating my foot, so that was a bummer for me,” Abdullah said via ESPN’s Michael Rothstein. “But I’m shaking back good now. It’s helped me understand my body more, so I’m a lot more penciled in on what I need to do as far as recovery, make sure I’m (doing all the) right things for my body to make sure I’m ready for this 2017 season.”

Abdullah has been named the Lions’ starting running back by head coach Jim Caldwell and is expected to be a major contributor to the team’s offense after fully recovering from the harrowing injury.
