TUOS coach Jim Tressel says it's doubtful that starting tailback Chris "Beanie" Wells will play Saturday night against top-ranked USC.
"We were hoping he'd wake up this morning and feel even better than yesterday, but that didn't happen, He had more soreness this morning than we'd hoped for."
"I'm listing him as doubtful."
I still think he plays.
It won't matter.
Edit: Adding T9's thoughts previously viewed in the comments section. Once again, she proves she is smarter than me, but she still sucks at photoshop.
Sports Science Thursday: Lisfranc joint complex injury can occur as a result of direct or indirect trauma. Direct trauma occurs when an external force strikes the foot. With indirect trauma, force is transmitted to the stationary foot so that the weight of the body becomes a deforming force by torque, rotation or compression.
Basically he came down on his foot funny somehow and separated/tore/tweaked his forefoot, just like a horseman in Napolean's army whose foot got stuck in the stirrup after he fell off of his horse. Dr. Lisfranc (1790-1847) recognized the injury to the metatarsal ligaments, hence, he gets the name. Read the article, it's pretty complicated but even this girl could understand it. And I bet that Beenie is not playing any time soon....Again, I have NO formal knowledge and my comments are based on the pure GUESSING of my friends...but there isn't much else you can do to your foot where all of a sudden you can't bear weight and you grab at your arch/instep.
