As the Lisfranc back foot is used more and more over time, the "wear down" effect which includes pain and tenderness, will not allow push off to step up into the pocket. Nor will it allow the all-important push off into the throw for consistent accuracy/strength of pass. He will simply stand there on his back foot like a statue. This is all consistent with the duck passes we have been seeing him throw too often now........some behind the receiver, some way above, and some WTF-type of passes to a phantom receiver.
