It was grim news for VT Football fans when they heard Nick Becton, starting left tackle, sprained one of his right toes. He is going to be on the sidelines for an undetermined amount of time and there is no guarantee he will be able to be back on the field for Sept. 6th – the big season opener against Boise State.
For those of you thinking – “Toe sprain? He’s seriously out for that? Walk it off man!” Here’s the definition of a “sprained toe” according to Aurora Health Care. “A toe sprain is caused by a partial tear of the ligaments that support a toe. Ligaments are strong bands of tissue that connect bones to each other.” Now it sounds a little more serious than you thought, huh?
