I had not heard anything about a degenerative condition, though he is certainly prone to foot injuries. I heard somewhere on local news (I from the Northeast) he had surgery to have screw inserted into the bone and a second surgery to have a larger screw put in. From what I understood, he should be good to go for next year.

Best I can tell he's been clean from a legal standpoint for the last few years, but not sure he's the clean cut fit that we keep hearing Philbin likes.
