Football season is among us! The lockout is over and the Lions (gasp), are turning some heads with a successful finish to the 2010 season as well as their off season acquisitions. One of those acquisitions, first round draft pick Nick Fairley hobbled off the field Monday with an undisclosed left foot injury. X-Rays came back negative, revealing no significant injury however; the player was seen wearing a walking cast. Today Nick Fairley is visiting a foot specialist in Charlotte, North Carolina for a second opinion.

There have been numerous concerns over the extent of the injury because of the walking cast. That being said, there are many clinical indications for using such a device. Different uses can range from a foot fracture to an ankle sprain to tendinitis. At this point - as a die hard myself - let’s hope it’s minor!
