Luckily for Reddan scans revealed he had not broken his tibia and a month on the Leinster ace is now out of plaster and no longer needs crutches.
The road to recovery remains a long one but an optimistic Reddan is confident he will be back to full fitness in time for the start of next season, while he is also harbouring a slim chance of featuring for Ireland on this summer’s tour to Canada and the US.
“The scan showed up that I was lucky,” Reddan told the Irish Times. “I’d torn ligaments, which made it look worse and I broke the fibula, which is the smaller bone in the leg. The tibia would have been a much, much bigger problem.”
“It’s probably not a real possibility to play this summer and the sensible thing is probably to make sure I’m right and be ready to go next season. In the end it won’t be my call anyway, it will be the physios.
“It (the break) was very simple, which was great because that is always a fear. There were no complications. It was all pretty straightforward.
"I've never broken any bone before and it was quite sore. I did three things, which on their own take 12 weeks and all together take the same amount of time. While it looked bad at first it was actually OK.”
