MRSA infection, I believe in his foot. It went away, but then came back and he had to have surgery to remove it.


I imagine it'd be hard to play with just 1 foot. No wonder he retired.

For sure. Let me tell you a little bit about how they surgically remove a MRSA infection, for those of you who don't know;

First they cut around the infection, then they cut down and between the infection and remove everything, all the tissue and what have you that is infected. After they've done that, they drain the wound..how you ask? Well for my knee, they put one hand on one side of the wound, one hand on the other side, and squeezed it out.. you dont' even want to know what it looked like and omg did it hurt.

Then they pack it was some sort of gauze like stuff and bandage the wound. I had that in for a few weeks I believe. I couldn't put any pressure at all on my right leg and had to walk with crutches and I was popping pain pills like they were tic tacs.

(at least this is what they did for my knee, I'm assuming most procedures are similar with MRSA)

Then I had to have the gauze taken out...they weren't gentle about it, they took a pair of tweezers, grabbed the fabric and yanked...omg...it hurt worse than the infection originally did. They then had to drain it again and this time, they didn't pack it, they put some sort of ointment on it and bandaged it and it had to heal closed. I still could barely walk on my leg.

It took quite a while after that for the wound to heal completely closed and for me to be able to comfortably walk. When I got to that point it was still a while after that I walked normally and without a grimace. In all it was like a 7 month process.

To have it in your foot, I mean there isn't much meat there to begin with... and really, do we know how bad the infection on his foot was? How much they had to cut into his foot? Top that with a Lisfranc injury...honestly I think fans had higher hopes of him coming back than what may have ever been realistic.

This hurts their line a lot. Like another poster said I remember when this team looked like they had one of the best lines in football. I guess they can add LG to their team needs for next year.

Nothing wrong with the way he worded it. Infection in his foot, then had to get said infection removed.
