He is at peace with his decision to put retirement off for another year. But even Jonathan Ogden had to admit that this isn't what he signed up for. "Oh, yeah," the Ravens left offensive tackle said last week as he sat in front of his locker in Owings Mills after trying again to practice with the team. "With the decision I made, if I had known then, I don't know if I'd have done it. But I didn't know. But with the decisions you make in life, you've got to go with it. " He didn't know that the injured left big toe suffered late last season would still be forcing him to go into each game this year unsure whether he can play.

It's a humid, sticky Friday here at Camden Yards, and the Orioles are hosting the first of a three-game Beltway series against the Nationals. In today's pregame, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said a decision has been made on the next step with outfielder Nolan Reimold, who hasn't played since April 30. Showalter wouldn't say what that decision is, but it appears from the way Showalter was talking that Reimold will have surgery. Showalter, however, wouldn't concede that Reimold's season is over.

It's a common misconception that bunions are caused by high heels and tight shoes, says Dr. John Senatore, chief of podiatry and a sports-medicine physician at Union Memorial Hospital. Stilettos and narrow toe boxes can aggravate those unsightly protrusions, but they are caused by foot type, says the veteran marathoner, a frequent lecturer on foot-related injuries and treatments. What is a bunion? The term "bunion" is derived from the Latin bunio, which translates into "turnip." The term is loosely applied to any enlargements of that big-toe joint.

There was too much downtime in the offseason for Daniel Wilcox. After he underwent surgery in January to repair his sprained left big toe, doctors ordered the Ravens tight end to stay off it for several months, adding that the healing process typically takes about a year. Naturally, Wilcox was concerned that his toe might impede his return to the job he loves. Just as worrisome was whether there would be a job for him to return to. "This is a scary league, where if you sit out for too long, somebody could come in and have your position in a matter of days or weeks," Wilcox said Monday after his first practice since being activated off the team's physically-unable-to-perform list.

Orthopedic surgeons and podiatrists who study it, operate on it and care for it are as enamored of the often-sweaty, sometimes-stinky foot as are cardiologists of the heart, or neurologists of the brain. "It's ingenious," says Edward Glaser, a Tennessee podiatrist who switched professions from mechanical engineering to podiatry because of his admiration for the foot's function. "As a machine, it's an engineering marvel." The foot is built to walk on everything natural - grassy knoll, pine needle forest floor, volcanic rock - uphill and down.

As Major League Soccer glamour boy David Beckham languished on the bench with an injured ankle earlier this season, a Los Angeles Galaxy fan could bear it no more. "That's what is wrong with sports," the fan began in a diatribe on an Internet forum. "Athletes now are nowhere near as tough as two generations ago. Turf toe? They make up injuries now." To fans, turf toe may sound as innocuous as a splinter. But a big toe injury sidelined Ravens tackle Jonathan Ogden for the last two regular-season games of 2006 and threatens his 2007 season, perhaps his career.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- David Wells' bout with gout in his right big toe continues, and yesterday the Orioles had the left-hander go through a series of X-rays to determine if something else might be exacerbating the problem.The X-rays showed no abnormalities, so all Wells can do is sit and wait, in pain. His pain was so acute Saturday that he went to a Milwaukee-area hospital to have a shot to reduce the inflammation."Last night [Sunday] was the only night I've been sleeping since last Tuesday," Wells said.

The Orioles have decided to skip Bruce Chen for one turn and hope to give him Monday's start against the New York Yankees, a decision made easier by last night's rainout. Chen played catch yesterday but still isn't ready to pitch after spraining the big toe on his left foot during Saturday's game in Atlanta. He"ll throw at least one side session before returning to the rotation for the beginning of a two-game series in the Bronx. "I've done all my work, gotten my throwing in." said Chen, who is wearing spikes with extra protection for the toe. "It feels much better.

NASHVILLE, TENN. -- Quarterback Kyle Boller could be facing surgery on his hyperextended right big toe. Boller, who stood on the sideline yesterday still wearing a protective boot, is scheduled to see a specialist in North Carolina today for a second opinion. Ravens coach Brian Billick said last week that the team was "optimistic" that Boller would be available for the game against the New York Jets on Oct. 2 but then couched the prognosis by indicating his three-year starter could be out as long as two months.
