The NFL issued the SuperBowl injury report yesterday. The following players have foot and ankle injuries which may limit their play in the big game.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS: Lynell Hamilton (ankle), Randall Gay (foot),  Bobby McCray (ankle) Jonathan Casillas (ankle), TE Darnell Dinkins (foot), G Jahri Evans (foot), LB WR Robert Meachem (ankle), WR Lance Moore (ankle).

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS: Dwight Freeney (ankle), CB Jerraud Powers (foot), Donald Brown (foot), RB Mike Hart (ankle), DT Antonio Johnson, Charlie Johnson (foot), Tamme (ankle).

Common foot injuries in football include turf toe, midfoot sprains and stress fractures and less commonly plantar fasciitis and tendonitis.

The most common ankle injury is an ankle sprain, but high ankle sprains causes severe ankle instability and are much more concering.
