08:05 AM ET 11.03 | Based on an almost cartoonishly cute handle, "turf toe" is often underestimated -- until someone suffers from it. In the meantime, can someone do [Kevin Kolb] a favor and come up with a better name for his injury than "turf toe?" ... "I remember Deion Sanders was the first one I have ever saw that had 'turf toe,' and I was thinking the same thing as a fan: 'What? Why is (he) out for two weeks with a turf toe?'" Kolb said. "Then you get one and realize it's a little more painful than it comes across as." Kolb didn't practice Wednesday but did move from a walking boot to an unlaced tennis shoe. "Progress," he said. Kolb will need more progress if he's to play Sunday. Backup John Skelton "probably" will start if Kolb can't play.

It cost Jack Lambert the end of his career

I believe turf toe was what took Jack Lambert out of football

I think he has "Turf Head" as many times as his head hit the turf last Sunday.

I'm sure Rex Ryan is very interested in this problem.

Are you suggesting he might have a "solution"?

Massages and saliva baths

Is this what's keeping Kevin Kolb from being an elite quarterback?

Rex would probably like it if he could find "Surf and Turf Toe" at a Golden Corral.

Whomever is signing his gameday checks hopes it is.

He's certain he doesn't like turf toe and we're certain he's not a very good qb.

John Skelton...I didn't even know he was on an NFL team. That's the Cardinals back up?? Wow how sad is that?

When he puts on a Cardinals uniform, he is transformed.

Unfortunately, he becomes Red Skelton.
