Taylor Has Plantar Fasciitis, ARE a Sore Hamstring

Defensive end Jason Taylor was held out of practice this afternoon because of plantar fasciitis, coach Jim Zorn said, while starting WR Antwaan Randle El rested his sore hamstring. They were the only new players to sit out the afternoon session.

Both players took part fully in a vigorous morning session. Zorn said Taylor missed practice earlier in camp because of to the foot problem, and was not bothered by it in Saturday's game, but the problem "flared up" today. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the tissue running across the bottom of the foot. "It's something we just have to watch," Zorn said. Zorn said he does not believe the problem will become severe and the team will allow Taylor, soon to be 34, to rest it when he needs to.

Randle El's hamstring is not injured, Zorn said, but is bothering him a bit. "We held him out not wanting it to get worse," Zorn said. He is expected to return shortly.

I thought this sounded like no big deal. But then I read this:

Many different treatments have been effective, and although it typically takes six to eighteen months to find a favorable resolution

and then this:

Most patients should improve within one year of beginning non-surgical treatment, without any long-term problems. A few patients, however, will require surgery. Over 95% will then be relieved of their heel pain.


Tell me this is not what is going on here - also shouldn't it have been caught by physical?

Posted by: zornskins | August 12, 2008 4:44 PM | Report abuse

I had plantar fasciitis, and let me tell you, this is no joke.

It feels like someone is driving a nail through the bottom of your foot with every step; not pleasant, at all.

I got it from wearing nothing but flip flops in San Diego two summers ago. It took a year and a half before it was fully healed. Until then, it would feel good, at times, but always flared up again.

I had to get custom orthotics made, and do all this stretching. Tight calf muscles and heel chord, and a high arch are the culprit. Often times, this can be a pre cursor to an Achilles injury. Cortisone can alleviate the pain, but does not address the underlying problem.

Ouch, just ouch...

Wearing tight fitting shoes without proper arch support and then loading the feet on that hard surface, with such repetitive force only hastened the underlying issue; the structurally unsound foot, and the attendant inflammation of the sheathing on the bottom of that same foot.

Not that simple downtheshoregal; This is a chronic condition, one that requires being off your feet to fully heal.

Otherwise, it'll be quiet, then flare up again, then be quiet, then flare up again.

FROM BANKONEN, July 27....


Corkczar,

++++Keep beating your tired drum. Jason Taylor has been in the league forever - always called a tweener - and always stopping the run. Yeah! Check out his injury history as well. The dude is too quick. There is more than one way to skin a fox.

Keep posting your negativity until it happens and then tell us your right. Eight years of stopping the run and playing every game - all of a sudden the guy will get hurt because of two games against the Giants? Maybe, if you keep the negative nellie chicken shcite mantra.--BANGKOKEN ++++


I confess. It was my Negativity that caused Taylor to hurt his foot "Dancing with the Stars." Gad, I thought he'd at least get hurt PLAYING FOOTBALL.

Old guys are injury prone. Hope it's minor, but as many have posted, that's a BIG DEAL injury.

Not uncommon at all for this condition to not manifest itself until later in adult life; mid to late thirties.

Jason Giambi also suffered from plantar faciitis, but recovered well enough to play DH and run the bases; not all hope is lost for Jason, by any means,

but this is NOT good news...

Beating a dead horse now, and this is my final thought:

Good bye quick first step and explosiveness. Depending on how bad Jason's stabbing heel pain is, it's one of those injuries that's always in the back of your mind; hard not to be gingerly, post PF.

Cortisone will help only in the short term.

JOHNSON WANTS TO BE OCHO CINCO, LEGALLY
Posted by Michael David Smith on August 12, 2008, 7:24 p.m. EDT
Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson was fined $5,000 for wearing “Ocho Cinco” on the back of his jersey before a game in 2006.

To avoid getting fined, Johnson hasn’t done it since then. But Johnson now has a plan for how he can get away with having “Ocho Cinco” spelled out over the “85″ on his back.

We’ve learned that Johnson has taken the first steps in the state of Florida toward legally changing his last name to Ocho Cinco.

Seriously.

If Johnson follows through on this, his actual, legal name will be Chad Ocho Cinco, and the NFL would then (we assume) allow him to put his new last name on the back of his jersey.

From a business standpoint, this might be Chad’s way of picking up some of the extra cash that he wants to make but that the team has said it won’t give him. The jersey would instantly become one of the NFL’s top sellers, and NFL players get a cut of all sales of their jerseys.

In recent interviews, including one on ESPN Monday night, Johnson has made veiled references about future plans that he has said will change the way fans think about him. This is a strange one, to say the least.
