Hog football in toe jam (UPDATE)

Posted By on Sat, Jul 29, 2006 at 11:38 AM

We heard through the grapevine that Razorback tailback Darren McFadden was involved in a bar fight in Little Rock last night and hurt his toe.

Sure enough, a press release issued this morning by the University of Arkansas athletic department says McFadden today had surgery on a joint in his left toe and "will be sidelined for several weeks". He is "doubtful" for the Sept. 2 season opener against USC.

Guess we won't see this again:

UPDATE: A reader leaves a comment with a link to the AP story filed this afternoon, which has some additional information. Turns out it was a bar fight after all:

McFadden got into a fight at 4:20 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot of Palace the Club, a Little Rock private club, according to a police report. The fight was still going on, and a crowd was watching, when officers arrived.

McFadden told police he didn't know the person with whom he was fighting, the report said. He was then taken to a hospital for treatment.
