While some of the physical risks facing CFL players are self-evident – concussions, torn ligaments, various muscle strains, the occasional broken bone – some of the nastiest injuries are the ones you can’t see.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats receiver Terrence Toliver posted a photo of his gnarly-ass foot on Saturday and it is disgusting.
Response from the Twitterverse ranged from sympathy to oh-my-god my eyes, my eyes!!!
This image will haunt me

Toliver’s tootsies caught the eyes of former CFL quarterback and current TSN analyst Matt Dunigan, a man who knows a thing or two about injuries.

Toliver offered an explanation as to how, exactly, this happened.

The Ticats are on a bye week so he should have some time to get that puppy cleaned up a little. And please, no more photos.
