Darren McFadden did not play in the Raiders final series in the fourth quarter against Kansas City because he was suffering from turf toe, according to KCChiefs.com. Michael Bush came into the game and all six plays in the series were running plays to him, and he gained 58 yards and scored a touchdown.

I like a better source than the opposing teams website.Furthermore, I'm sure it's been discussed ad nauseum, but all turf toe is is a sprain of a joint in the big toe and, as we all know, not all sprains are created equal.

Brought up during the team interview. Heard on Sirius. Said they could win the game with Bush so they kept him out. I assume that means he could have returned but didn't see any reason to take the risk.

Turf toe is a very serious injury and tends to be a nagging one that hangs around all season. Yes, you can play with it; but it really affects your play. Bad news for McFadden owners. Good news for Michael Bush who looked very quick and elusive on his TD run.

Oversimplified to the point of being incorrect, or at least misleading."Turf toe" is a sprain of the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint of your big toe usually caused by a hyperflexion of the joint. It's a complex joint encompassing 4 bones, 9 ligaments, and 3 muscular attachments. Of those multiple ligaments that can be strained, as in any strain, there are various degrees which are simplified into a 1st, 2nd or 3rd degree sprain, the 3rd being most serious.

Whereas a 3rd could be season ending, a mild 1st could merely be annoying for a week or two.

To summarize, all strains, and therefore all "turf toes", are not created equal.

I really question the validity of this quote, not so much the part about McFadden but what Kiffin says about the Chiefs, sounds like bulletin board material and I don't think coaches make snide comments towards specific players/positions on the opposing teams players. Here's the quote mentioned above:

On pulling RB Darren McFadden and running RB Michael Bush in the closing series: “Darren had turf toe during the game. At halftime I told the team ‘I think Michael Bush can win this game.’ I said the only way we’re going to lose this game, with the way their quarterbacks are playing, is if we turn the ball over. I don’t think you saw how fast Darren can be on that big run he had, but he made up for it on the touchdown.”

I have been playing FFL for more years than I know anymore and in my experience Turf Toe is serious. Unless you know the severity of the sprain yourself, don't pretend you know that this isn't serious. I have seen many HBs and WRs sit out many games over the years because of turf toe. It doesn't sounds as bad a knee injury, but it can be very debilitating. Obviously we need more information but McFadden owners have reason to be concerned.

He isn't pretending to know that this isn't serious. He's pointing out that the severity is unknown.You mentioned that many HBs and WRs have had to sit out games because of turf toe. While that's obviously true, it's equally true that many HBs and WRs have played through turf toe. Which group are you going to be more likely to remember? Heck guys with mild sprains might not even make the injury report.

It's too soon to know whether McFadden is in the severe or mild category.

 
I know this wasn't the point here, but...

Raiders Head Coach Lane KiffinOn the game: “You win by doing three things, in my opinion. You win with playing great defense. I thought our defense played physical all day. We kept (Chiefs RB) Larry (Johnson) in check and made him run sideline-to-sideline. I thought we had a good day against their receivers as well. I’m really proud of the way our coaches game planned for this game.”“The second way you win is to play great special teams. Special teams are so valuable on the road. A perfect example of this is, they go down and score and get the two-point conversion. (KR) Johnnie (Lee Higgins) and the kick return bring it back to midfield and then we fumble. That brings it back to the 20 if we don’t have the return we had.”“The third way you win is you run the ball. For our guys to come in here today and run the ball for 300 yards with (T) Mario (Henderson) the first time ever playing in the NFL, I’m very, very proud of that.”
I agree playing good defense is important...checkI agree that playing special teams well is important (although less important than defense)...checkI agree that running the ball is important...checkWhere is throwing the ball?My sig gives my breakdown, but it is kind of odd to say 3 things win games for you unless you choose offense, defense and special teams IMO

Sounds like McFadden already had the injury before he busted loose in the second half. He wouldn't have been out there for all of the 3rd and most of the 4th quarters if it was too serious, would he?
 
Darren McFadden (toe) may not practice on Wednesday.

Raiders coach Lane Kiffin expressed concern about McFadden, who is believed to be dealing with turf toe. His owners should grab Michael Bush.
