Carl Nicks dealing with permanent toe injury
 
Last year, the Buccaneers splurged on three big-name free agents: Vincent Jackson, Carl Nicks, and Eric Wright.

Wright already is gone. While Nicks is still there, hes not really there because of a toe injury that will always be there for Nicks.

Nicks showed up for camp with his foot heavily bandaged, and he has participated sparingly in practice. He explained to reporters that its a condition that wont completely be going away. Ever.

I will have to deal with it my whole life, Nicks said, via JoeBucsFan.com. Honestly, it is not 100 percent, yet. I plan on playing some this next preseason game and obviously, the third one. We will see how it goes.

Regardless of how it goes, its never going away.

I have all the confidence in the world I will be back to playing, Nicks said. I will just have to deal with it my whole life. I would lie if I told you it didnt affect me at all. It affects the way I walk, the way I stand around. I have to stand a certain kind of way. It is something I just have to deal with. I dont want to get into taking painkillers and not knowing if it is hurting.

Its unclear whether Nicks is suffering from turf toe or some other toe injury. Regardless, its affecting him and it will be affecting him forever.

Sucks for him but I do wonder if the Saints already knew this and that's why we didn't resign him.

"Permanent" ? Or just a chronic case of 'turf toe'? I'm still laughing at the amount of money they threw at Eric Wright, :lol:.

I'm scratching my head at why SanFran was so eager to take him of their hands?!
