Hopefully his podiatrist got him all straightened out and he has an explosive productive season. I love watching this kid play. I never saw anything about Gibson getting surgery. That's an indication that his injury wasn't severe, just painful. In contrast Patrick Mahomes did have surgery to repair his turf toe, which there's no rumors or even anyone questioning his ability to 100% recover. Julio Jones had it in 2017 and nobody is talking about that being any concern as he's being shopped now, 4 years post surgery. The point is that it's highly unlikely that a young Pro like Gibson, who didn't even appear to require surgery, would have any lingering affects from that injury. There are more rare cases where a severe turf toe injury that required surgical repair, never fully heals and arthritis sets in down the road. Good example is Deon Sanders. He played a few more seasons after turf toe surgery but arthritis later caused him to retire ( a Hall of Famer ). Gibson appears to be fine. 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
