Two experts have weighed in on Harry Kane’s injury that he sustained in the 4-1 win against Bournemouth on Sunday.
One Tottenham fan asked the opinion of David Chao, a former NFL team head doc and a sports medical analyst on Twitter.
Chao said that the injury looked worse than it was and that it “seems to be inversion low standard right ankle strain.”
He said that Kane should be back “sooner than you think”.
Seems to be inversion low standard right ankle sprain. Looks worse than it is and back sooner than you think. https://t.co/pIjg7gYA9V

Tottenham fans chimed in on the subject, saying that Kane had a history of ankle injuries and would that change the prognosis?
Eric Abrams, a foot and ankle surgeon, said that Kane hadn’t ruptured all three lateral ligaments last year.
He added that if he had he would have needed reconstructive surgery to play at the top level.
He went on to say that this injury is likely “a result of inherent instability from prior injury.”
He said that if he hasn’t torn his CFL that he should be back in a “few weeks to a month”.
However, he did add that if Kane has torn his CFL, that he would miss the World Cup.
If not he’ll be a few weeks to a month. If he did tear CFL, he’ll possibly need a lateral ankle stabilization surgery and will miss World Cup. Let’s see what MRI shows tomorrow! ????????????

Football Insider verdict:
Tottenham fans are obviously worried about the Kane injury and will be desperate to cling onto any news. It must be said that these two verdicts, albeit from experts in their field, are based purely on visual evidence and Spurs fans shouldn’t read too much into them. However, if their prognosis are correct then it would be great news. The doomsday scenario is the torn CFL, which would rule him out of the World Cup and the rest of the PL season, but the fact that he wasn’t taken out on a stretcher surely makes this highly unlikely? Spurs have said they won’t give an official update today but with Kane due for a scan on Monday, there should be some official news on Tuesday.
