New York Jets Running Back Matt Forte is listed as day to day currently with a toe injury and is likely to miss week 4. He had an x-ray performed which showed no fractures, which could mean he suffered a bone bruise or the dreaded “Turf Toe”.  Turf Toe occurs when the big toe is jammed in an upward extension direction. Treatment is generally rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medications for pain and swelling, and then a gentle rehab program consisting of physical therapy for improved range of motion and strengthening. General time frame for return to play 2-4 weeks.
