a toe injury ending a career? really?

Must be an arthritic Shaq-toe type deal. Either that or something that needs to be amputated. Those are the only things that I could think of that would end a career.

That's what I was thinking. Just cut the damn thing off it it is that big of an issue.:goof:

Actually if its his big toe that could cause major balance issues. It'd be extremely hard to walk, let alone run and play football, if your big toe was amputated or messed up.

It's becoming increasingly doubtful that Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby will be ready for the start of the regular season. He hasn't practiced yet this training camp because of a sore left toe that he said has caused problems in leg muscles. Dansby was walking out of the team's facility Monday with a rolling bag that contained a treatment device that he said is helping. "It's a serious injury," he said. "They say (it could be a) career-ending injury." (http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarepublic/sports/articles/0822cardsnb0822.html) Dansby said the problem is in the bone of his big toe.

Makes sense now.

Didn't a toe problem affect OJ McDuffie, or one of our WRs???

Maybe it was called "turf toe"...
He basically couldn't perform the last year or so of his career, and retired.

yeah, turf toe is a common problem among football players, but this sounds worse.

Cards always had bad luck with Defensive players!!

See Simeon Rice !!

I've had a minor case of turf toe and it really doesn't heal very well. But it didn'y reallt prevent me from doing that much.
