http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000168433/article/eddie-lacys-toe-not-a-problem-alabama-doctor-says

Quote:
"The joint underneath the toenail was fused to allow the ligament to work better basically," Cain told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Tyler Dunne. "It's something you do to give you a better push-off. His big toe moves just like a normal big toe in terms of motion. ... If you fused it completely, it'd give you a stiff big toe and you can't push off and that's a big problem. In Eddie's case, he does not have that. His fusion does not affect his big-toe motion.

"The bottom line is, the fusion he had does not affect his big-toe motion."

Cain said he's had other players who have had the same surgery and led productive NFL careers. He declined to name those players.



If this belongs in TAPT or the Lacy pick thread, feel free to lock 'er up.


How do you all feel this will end up?

I don't see this and still don't see it as an issue. We have the most conservative doctors in the world on our staff, if a guy gets a paper cut we sit them for 6-8 weeks. If Lacy had serious medical reds we would have passed on him.

It looks like a few teams out there might not have done their proper amount of homework on the Lacy toe situation. According to the Bama doc the kid has full mobility in that toe, plus he's already proved himself to be productive with it after ripping off 1300 plus this past season. Hopefully we will soon see that the Packers got a major steal.

Wait, so his toe isn't falling off like the Broncos and Steelers thought? I'm shocked. Rolling Eyes

Packers are a very conservative team when it comes to injury. If our docs have the ok, then he's fine.

I almost can't imagine the Packers with one legitimate feature back much less two. Get that OL going in the right direction and it almost makes the Packers the team to beat this year.

I don't see this being a big deal. Green Bay would likely have done their research in advance [duh] and questioning their medical expertise is laughable.

Could have gone in the Lacy thread.
