Now that I think it was that serious but I was worried when they showed the replay that he had hurt something odd, reminded me a bit like the Bo Jackson injury.
I understand what you are trying to say. From what you presented, I agree that it is likely the initial injury was the Ed Reed blunt trauma to his hammy and not the turf toe.
