Turf toe. Good God! :eek:

I never realized what this injury meant before, other than that it seems relatively inocuous. I mean, it's a toe, right? Get over it.

Then last night, one of our running backs (Cedric Cobbs -- Razorbacks) suffered a so-called "turf-toe" injury, which knocked him out of the game with his future status unkown.

After the game, the radio announcers explained what turf toe is and my toe experiences sympathy pains every time I think about it. They said that turf toe happens when the player is tackled and his toe gets bent back against the turf and then about 900-pounds worth of defenders fall on the bent toe and jam it into the turf.

Oh my God, dudes. My flurking toe is in pain right now just thinking about it.

I don't know if this is true or not but a really tough Seahawks defensive player--somehow I don't think it was Kenny Easley--suffered a crushed testicle during a play.
