Carlton Davis And His Bum Toe

September twenty sixth, 2023

Todd Bowles explains.

So final night time made it two video games in a row with Bucs cornerback Carlton Davis not enjoying due to a toe damage.

Joe didn’t hear the toe was damaged. So “toe damage” to Joe means it’s minor. Nevertheless, Joe wished to know extra, partly as a consequence of concern as a result of the worst factor that may occur to a ability place participant is the dreaded turf toe.

It killed Deion Sanders’ profession and remains to be giving him issues some 23 years later.

And naturally, who might overlook how former Bucs offensive lineman Carl Nicks’ turf toe (together with the MRSA) did in his profession.

So final night time Joe requested Bucs coach Todd Bowles if Davis is preventing a turf toe damage. Bowles admitted he isn’t positive.

“It’s a toe damage,” Bowles mentioned. “Proper now, I don’t know if it’s a turf toe damage or an everyday damage.

“However, he’s making an attempt to get again on the market and when he comes again, we’ll be prepared for him.”

Davis did give it a go final night time in pregame warmups however couldn’t get on the sphere. Joe is assured the Bucs weighed enjoying him with not eager to worsen the damage and shedding him longer than one recreation, kind of like Vita Vea.

Vea, the Bucs’ manbeast defensive deal with, was questionable to play final night time, although he did. Vea is coping with a pec damage. These issues are nasty and lots of torn pecs will put a man on the shelf for the season.

“We’re not making an attempt to get him harm an excessive amount of, you already know,” Bowles mentioned of Vea. “We tried to rotate him as a lot as we might, and we obtained out of him what we might.”

If Davis has turf toe with Vea’s having a foul pec, these are two delicate accidents the Bucs and Davis/Vea are going to must navigate. It’s virtually value enjoying it protected and maintaining these guys out a recreation or two in order that they don’t miss months — or finish their seasons.
