It's a sprain of the ligaments of the big toe which limits using the toe to push off of - exactly what a DL has to do to have any power at all. Think of it as a 300 pound DL having to be explosive off that toe to get past another 300+ pound OL. He may not be able to play anyway. But if he does, it doesn't took good for his performance capability for the next several weeks. Medically, the best way for the strained ligaments to heal, is to rest the joint for 3 to 4 weeks. But it's an injury that can linger far beyond that. It just doesn't look good at all for our DL this year.
