Harry Kane’s ankle “feels good,” doesn’t set timeline to return

Things are looking promising, but Harry stopped short of giving a return date.

Wanna feel good about something? Harry Kane said something from Atlanta that will make even fans of the Los Angeles Rams smile. Kane and his fiancee were in Atlanta this weekend to attend Super Bowl LIII between Harry’s beloved New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams, and while there he gave the media an update about his injured ankle.

“It’s going well. I went away for some warm weather training and we’re stepping it up.

“We will see next week how we go, start to get the balls out and just see how the ankle reacts. It’s going well so far, but we have just got to take our time with it and make sure we get it right. I never put a time on any of my injuries. It is just about how it feels. The ankle feels great at the moment, so as long as the swelling stays away and we can keep progressing, that would be great.”

Last week, Kane posted a video on Twitter of him undergoing rehabilitation in an undisclosed tropical-looking location (later claimed to be either Florida or the Bahamas), and while I’m no doctor it looked impressive to see the range of mobility he has already regained on that ankle. While Kane says he won’t put a timeline on his return, he does apparently have the healing properties of Wolverine and it wouldn’t shock me at all if he’s back earlier than expected.

But let’s not get our hopes up quite yet. It’s possible that he’s merely on-pace in his rehab, and who knows, maybe he slipped going down the stairs after meeting Tom Brady last night and aggravated something, we don’t know. Sure does seem positive, though.

Meanwhile, his injured teammate Dele Alli posted an update on Instagram stating that he’s landed in Dubai along with his best friend Harry Hickford to begin rehabilitation on his injured hamstring.

We should probably assume that this is the same sports rehabilitation facility that Tottenham used for Harry Winks when he was still recovering from his ankle injury earlier in the year.
