Note that almost all athletes have surgery to repair their ruptured achilles.

Jason Peters -- not so famous, but a rare athlete re-rupture

Due to the huge number of professional athletes who have achilles tendon ruptures, I am trying not to post any threads on relatively little known players, especially when it comes to sports that are limited to one country (such as the NFL). However, this case is very unusual. An NFL athlete with access to the best surgeons and aftercare still managed to re-rupture. No amount of money and quality care can prevent the 2-5 percent re-ruptures in surgical cases.

I felt sorry for him last year when I read about his unusual case, but he is luckily now back and in great shape at age 31.
