Pennington had high ankle sprain last year

Chad Pennington hurt his ankle early last season. And he played for most of the season on this bad wheel. It turns out he actually had a high ankle sprain. The announcement was made by Rich Cimini.

"Pennington's high-ankle sprain early last season hampered his throwing mechanics and hurt his velocity, according to a person with knowledge of the situation," wrote Cimini in the New York Daily News.

This announcement is significant. Up to this point, the severity of Pennington's ankle injury was never made public. A high ankle sprain is much worse than a conventional ankle sprain.
