HOUSTON (June 7, 2006) — Houston Texans No. 1 draft pick Mario Williams will be sidelined for the rest of the week after having the toenails on both of his big toes removed.
Williams, a 6-foot-7, 292-pound defensive end, had the procedure done on June 5 after struggling with infections because of problems with his toenails.
Houston has been going through organized team workouts for the past month and had their first day of minicamp on June 7.
“They were bothering him throughout the camp,” said Texans coach Gary Kubiak. “So instead of trying to fight it, they removed them. We’re giving him a few days off to make sure it heals properly.”
Kubiak said Williams would probably return to practice on June 9.
I love strange stories like this. Removing both of your toenails sounds painful. Let’s hope the number 1 overall draft pick doesn’t have a chronic toe injury problem that sidelines his career.
Or at least, that they can keep yanking the toenails out. Ewwww.
