    Any news on what exactly the injury is? I have heard the big toe is injured but I haven't heard how? Broken , jammed , etc. Any info would be appreciated. On a side note do you guys think KGB is gonna play with that knee and ankle sprain. He is listed as questionable right now but I would think with both of those sprained thats pretty serious.

    I may be wrong but I remember seeing that it was just a Turf Toe injury, something that has been bothering him all season that he's been playing though.

    His toe has been hurt all season, but it hasn't flaired up until this Thursday. We're fortunate that we play on Thursday rather than Sunday... so let's find out on Tuesday.

    I'm starting to feel better about the possibility of Woodson playing. He is vital to us defeating the Cowgirls.

    I'm pretty sure he's had a good chance of playing the whole time. At the very worst its a broken toe and you just need to tough it out and take a shot to kill that pain in a game this big but its not broken anyways.

    Do you even play football?

    I along with a few of my buds have experienced Turf Toe. It's the big toe that's affected. Most players are required to rest for a MONTH to make a complete recovery.

    When your in a huge game you take a shot to numb it and you get your *** out there.

    Woodson is a gamer. I think he'll be out there but I'm not sure he's returning punts. Williams or maybe Blackmon if he's back will do that. Maybe even Greg Jennings now that I think about it. He took some reps in pre season.

    You cut the toe off...and keep playing.

    Hell.

    You have 9 other toes, so what's the problem?

    He better not be back there returning punts. He shouldn't have been back there to begin with.

    Put Tramon back there, dammit! :(

    In the 2000 NFL season, Charles Woodson started all sixteen games of the season but suffered a turf toe injury which prevented him from practicing. He finished the year with a career high 79 tackles, intercepted four passes, forced three fumbles and recovered one fumble.

    I'm pretty sure he will be out there.

    I may be incorrect about this, but didn't Sterling Sharpe play basically a whole season with a turf toe injury? It would have been back in the early 90's (one of Favre's first years w/the Packers).

    I believe the coaches held Sharpe out of practice the entire week but he would suit up and play on Sunday ...

    I also believe that Charles Woodson will get on the field Sunday against the Cowpokes.

    I just wonder if the "just cut it off and play" realizes if it is turf toe( irrittaion to the two tiny bones in the bottom of teh big toe) it will be several weeks before it gets better. Hopefully it is just some irritation to the toe that anti-infammatories can help with

    Turf toe is extremely painful and difficult to run or cut with. It's an injury to the major joint for the big toe. It doesn't sound like Woodson's injury is as bad as it could be though.

    I had turf toe a could years ago from a player planting his foot right on the joint. I tried to run, but each time I did, the toe slipped out of joint and I'd have to take off my shoe to put it back in. While attempting to "walk it off" the toe slipped out with each step. It took a couple months of good PT to get back to running and cutting, yet the toe still slips out from time to time.
    This was not an injury that could have been solved with a shot for the pain, I could not plant the foot or run.

    The only "quick fix" is to cut the toe off at the joint, but I think that would affect his running and cutting ability. Fortunately Woodson has some of the best medical support available and his injury doesn't sound as bad as it could be.

    Yes, I believe Sharpe played at least an entire season with turf toe. (Maybe even the year he set the reception record.) I don't think he ever practiced.

    One of the articles I read said Woodson's injury is not turf toe.
