Ugh...Jake Long hurts his ankle in Pro Bowl

For anyone who was watching the Pro Bowl, seeing Jake Long get his leg rolled up on in the fourth quarter was quite the scary sight.

The announcers made no mention of it at the time, but apparently Jake was on the ground in pain for a few minutes, and after the game he said he tweaked his right ankle - the same one he injured during the season.

While he did return for the final snap of the game (a kneel down) and has said that his ankle will be fine, I'll believe it when he's at offseason conditioning and walking without any kind of a limp.

The team certainly can't afford this injury becoming something that lingers.
