Broken Foot

 In 2014 Tevin Coleman played 7 games with a broken foot

Broken Sesamoid bones are difficult to heal when there is motion at the great toe joint and the almond sized bones. With moving targets, the edges of the bone can't heal together easily. Continued play may have taken it's toll on the blood supply o the sesamoid bone. These little bones are too small to screw back together. Treatment is either casting or removal of the bone.
