    I hope this doesnt turn into a big problem during the season. I hate to have to see Mario miss games because of "toe" problems. :crutch:

    Sounds like he might have footwear issues that need to be addressed.

    I hope he didn't get my staph infection....I no longer underestimate the power of the microscopic beast.

    You ain't lying. I was just at the hospital to see my boss who is battling a staph infection. We should re label that term and call it something that can kill you quickly if you do not take care of it right away. Very scary stuff.

    I was fighting one about a year ago. It seems like it came back about every 3 months.

    It wouldn't surprise me if that's what he's got.

    Thanks for the heads up. I was just hitting refresh to read other posts. Wasn't aware that was the result.


    Sorry everyone.

    Note to Texans. Do not step on Mario's toes. They are worth $54 million.

    As Navin R. Johnson's adopted father said to him in The Jerk, "see a doctor and get rid of it."

    I blame this squarely on T-Mac. Mario was doing good in TC until T-Mac showed up yesterday.

    :sarcasm: Well not so much...

    Ya beat me to it, N1. Deffinalty need the equiment man to step up. Well I'm reading this as they needed to give the tackles a blow befor he killed them. Gotta be some sort of fiber glass flap encased in leather they can put ontop of his cleats ? Need to get this taken care of no boubt.

    Definitely something to keep an eye on. Many athletes have succumbed to toe problems and hopefully this is not going to become a problem for Mario Williams.

    Shoot, we are paying him about 5 million a toe. Let's hope this isn't an issue all season. Or some people might be reminding them who they could have drafted instead. :stirpot:

    The money thing I love it.:)

    I have had both of my Big Toes worked on for in grown toe nails and is the worst pain I have felt.

    Personally I hope we can hold him out as long as he wants, CAN NOT BEAT FRESH LEGS ON A ROOKIE, DDs Rookie year anyone?
