When I read the injury report, I thought it said "sprained toe." Is there a difference b/w sprained toe and turf toe?

from http://www.athleticadvisor.com/Injuries ... _-_toe.htm
Turf Toe is a sprain of the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint of the first toe. That is, the joint of the toe to the foot is sprained. The injury usually results from a hyperflexion mechanism; the toe is bent to far upward. This can result from a hard push off on a rigid surface, having the toe forcibly flexed while being tackled, or by stopping short allowing the toe to jam in the toe box of the shoe. These mechanisms cause damage to the ligaments of the joint and the joint capsule.


sounds like the same thing.

First Degree Sprains
A 1º sprain usually results in very little time loss. The athlete must be able to run and change direction properly prior to return to competition. Application of ice and taping the toe may be enough treatment for return to competition on the day of the injury. Also, spring steel shoe inserts can be of great benefit to reduce the forces applied to the joint.

Second Degree Sprains
This type of injury often leads to time loss. This is due to the greater amount of tissue damage suffered. This athlete may need crutches for walking, and should be seen by a physician to rule out a bony fracture. When the athlete can run and change direction with out pain and loss of mobility, he/she may return to participation with the toe taped and a steel shoe insert.

Third Degree Sprains
These injuries are severe and may be a season ending injury. It must be determined if the joint surfaces have been damaged. If so, early return to participation may result in severe degenerative arthritis, and the loss of a career. Surgery may be required to repair the torn ligaments and tendons.


this site is also helpful in understanding the injury:

"Turf Toe" was a major problem for Chris Brown last year. Is it different for wide recievers? Maybe not as much stop and go or cutting for recievers?

Beatin' myself up over that very question Ms. San Diego (last Sunday Night had to be fun to watch for ya.). I guess it depends on the amount of time the Reverend is out. If it's a week or two...Fergy gets the nod. But if the Turf Toe is bad, Curtis could be a big pick-up. I've got Isaac on one of my teams (with CJ, Branch, and Kennison) and am a lil' freaked out. I have a waiver claim in on Plaxico (for Kennison), but if that don't fly I'm gonna be scramblin' to shore up my WRs.

BTW...1100 in less than a month? Damn. ;-D
