What’s Up With Alabama Quarterback AJ McCarron? Likely An Ingrown Toenail

FeetWith Alabama a prohibitive double-digit favorite against Virginia Tech later today, could there be any drama or suspense left before kickoff?  Yes.  Sort of.  If an ingrown toenail qualifies.

Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron was spotted wearing a walking boot and sources tell ESPN’s Mark Schlabach that he was wearing it because of an ingrown toenail. says McCarron has no known injury, practiced all week and that walking boots are common when a player is not seriously injured.

Here’s the photographic proof from his arrival in Atlanta Friday.  Looks like something from an episode of ”Homeland.”  Will it impact his play?  I guess we’ll know more if ESPN brings in a podiatry expert.

Update: Alabama coach Nick Saban asked about the walking boot for McCarron this morning on ESPN. “Well this is the most famous in-grown toenail ever known to man. It makes it more comfortable to be in a boot because his hard-sole shoes hurt his feet. But his cleats don’t and he hasn’t missed any practice, and I think he’s fine for the game.”
