    is that your assumption? or from somebody within the organization? i remember he suffered from turf toe in oakland and it really hurt his game. i think he missed some time from it.

    that would be in no way indicative of the severity of this specific injury. he has turf toe. he can jog straight forward. he can't make cuts.

    Hopefully he's ok and McCarthy just kept him out of the game to play it safe.

    This is posted on www.espn.com

    ***********************************************************

    DETROIT -- Cornerback Charles Woodson sustained a toe injury on a 34-yard punt return for the Green Bay Packers late in the first quarter Thursday against Detroit.

    Woodson jogged off the field, underwent X-rays and didn't return.

    "It's not broken, but it hurts," he said after Green Bay beat the Lions 37-26. "It's my big toe on my right foot. I did the same thing on my other foot once in Oakland."

    Woodson said it was too early to determine his status for Thursday's game at Dallas.

    His departure forced Green Bay to play without two starting defensive backs, Woodson and free safety Nick Collins, who was inactive because of a knee injury.

    Is Will Blackmon healed yet? Last I heard it sounded like he was still out for awhile.

    My guess is Tramon Williams will get some work on returning punts this week. Woodson is going to be limited in practice and hopefully can go against Dallas.

    Didn't know much about "turf-toe," so I looked it up on wiki. Doesn't sound good to me . .


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turf_toe

    Turf toe

    Turf toe, more properly known as a metatarsalphalangeal joint sprain, is an injury to the joint and connective tissue between the foot and one of the toes, usually the big toe. Turf toe is named from the injury being associated with playing sports on rigid surfaces such as artificial turf and is a fairly common injury among professional American football players.

    Often, the injury occurs when someone or something falls on the back of the calf while that leg's knee and tips of the toes are touching the ground. The toe is hyperextended and thus the joint is injured. Additionally, athletic shoes that tend to have very flexible soles combined with cleats that "grab" the turf will cause overextension of the big toe. It should be noted that this can occur on the lesser toes as well.

    The injury can be debilitating for athletes who need to accelerate or 'cut' quickly. Use of the toes is not possible during the healing process. Since the toes are necessary for proper push-off when accelerating, those sorts of athletic activities can be almost completely curtailed. A healing period of one or more months is often required.

    Because of the anatomy of the distal foot and the unique use of the foot, it is often impossible to properly tape or brace the joint. Although difficult, it is not impossible to tape the toe to limit dorsiflexion (upward bend of toe). Additionally, wearing a shoe with a rigid sole and cushioned innersole will help. Anti-inflammatory medication as well as physical therapy is recommended.

    Turf toe can often progress into a chronic problem, in which the joint(s) never really heals or heals too slowly to return to usual physical activities.

    Turf toe can become more serious if left untreated.

    -Deion Sanders was plagued with this injury throughout his career, with serious reductions in playing time near the end of his football career.

    -A bad case of Turf Toe ended former Pittsburgh Steeler Jack Lambert's career in 1984.

    Speaking of which. I think Tramon Williams did an excellent job on the snaps he had. He really had some big plays in my oppinion.

    I was not too impressed with Frank Walker though.

    He is a football player that has talent at the position of Punt Returner.. unless there is someone else on the roster that does a better job at making the correct call on the ball, what decisions to make it certain situations and has a better chance at bigger returns.. Charles is the punt returner.

    He makes big money... let him earn it on the field.

    Everyone points to NE as an example of how to run a team.. they utilize players in multiple facets.. why should Woodson be any different?

    Are you calling him soft?

    I would say that yesterday indicated that he might be a little soft. He jogged off the field without so much as a limp, and comes out for the second half in street clothes.

    When you make the kind of money these guys do, and you have an Iron Man QB leading the offense, I would think that a toe injury wouldn't keep you off the field.

    Or Ronnie Lott... he did the same thing before a game.

    Or John Elway removing a part of his bicep muscle instead of having surgery to repair it..

    Some people put the game ahead of body parts..

    That Turf Toe injury can be a MF.
    Hopefully he won't be so hampered by it that he will miss the Cowboy game, we really need him in this very important game.

    He played through a shoulder injury and some other stuff last year, and kept returning punts.
