Cameron Payne had to take a break for six weeks as he was recovering from a fractured bone in his right foot, sustained during September’s Blue-White Scrimmage. Payne had broken his fifth metatarsal this same year, and had to have surgery in July. Following consultations with specialists, Payne opted not to have further surgery for the metatarsal injury. Thunder general manager had originally intended for Payne to be re-evaluated within six to eight weeks. This meant that Payne would miss the start of the regular season.

Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot typically breaking when bended, crushed, or stretched beyond its natural capabilities. Usually the location of the fracture indicates how the break occurred, whether it was through an object, fall, or any other type of injury. 

Common Symptoms of Broken Feet:

  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Blue (foot)
  • Numbness
  • Cold
  • Misshapen
  • Cuts
  • Deformities

Those that suspect they have a broken foot shoot seek urgent medical attention where a medical professional could diagnose the severity.

Treatment for broken bones varies depending on the cause, severity and location. Some will require the use of splints, casts or crutches while others could even involve surgery to repair the broken bones. Personal care includes the use of ice and keeping the foot stabilized and elevated.

Dez Bryant of the Dallas Cowboys received a therapeutic injection to reinforce his recovery from a fractured right foot. The therapeutic injection included bone marrow stem cells that were taken from his hip and then injected into his ankle. Team owner Jerry Jones stressed that the procedure was not an indication for a setback in Bryant’s rehab. “There is not a concern about his progress,” Jones shared. “That fact that he can do that (injection therapy) is a positive. This was not something to address something that was a surprise or anything. It was something to get him some additional strength.”
