It looks like Bart Scott‘s long streak of 119 straight games played will be coming to an end now. After not missing a single game since 2005, the New York Jets linebacker will sit out of Sunday’s game versus the Miami Dolphins with a hyperextended toe injury on his right foot, according to the New York Daily News.
Sources say that Scott has been having trouble with his right foot so badly that he had to move from a size 12 cleat to a size 13.5 due to the toe. It also had to be taped and it needed a “cushion” inside the cleat for more comfort.
However, Scott says he really doesn’t care about the streak. He wants to do whatever to help his team.
“I don’t care about a streak,” he told Newark Star Ledger. “If helping the team best is for me to be on the sideline, help these young linebackers see what’s going on, then I’ll do that.”
Sources say that Scott will have to rest for three-to-four weeks for the injury to be completely healed, but it doesn’t appear that the 32-year-old will be wanting to go that long without playing. Scott says he is willing to play through the pain, but not this Sunday.
“Last week against New England, he played in just nine snaps, the toe throbbing while he tried to cut and change direction against an offense that planned to force him out into space. He’s been looking to prove a point to his teammates about playing through pain, though this week has been especially difficult.
“It’s like losing a thumb on your hand. Everything you do comes off your big toe. I’ve always prided myself on having a high pain tolerance, playing through things, and I just want to show my teammates I’m willing to bite down and continue to play and do what I can do to help us win.”
Scott, an 11-year veteran, has so far gotten 31 tackles on the season. This is his fourth year as a member of the New York squad.
