Turf toe is not a term you want to use when talking to a head football coach about his star running back. Although there are worse injuries, turf toe -- an injury to the soft tissue around the big toe joint -- can keep a key player out of a game or a lead dancer off the stage for several weeks. Though it's most commonly associated with football players who play on artificial turf -- hence the name "turf" toe
It typically takes two to three weeks for the pain to subside. After the immobilization of the joint ends, some patients require physical therapy in order to re-establish range of motion, strength, and conditioning of the injured toe.
The basic approach to treating turf toe is to give the injury ample time to heal, which means the foot will need to be rested.
I don't know how much a defensive game plan changes for different RBs but I get the feeling they want Green Bay to think he will play. Schwartz also makes a big deal about announcing if Shaun Hill will start every week so I have to think Best will be out or have a limited load.
GB is not much of a threat in the run department with their starter injured & an improving (not good) O line ... so hopefully our D line can get to Rodgers since he stands to have about 40 pass attempts on Detroit's secondary. Ouch!
14.5 pt spread is bananas in the NFL ... wow that is almost hard to believe. Maybe they play sloppy & commit a bunch of timely penalties & Detroit can take advantage (like Monday in Chicago) ... but maybe if grandma had balls she would be my grandpa!
