IF he developed a blister, it's probably caused by placing weight on another part of the foot that isn't used to it.

Schiano states that it is not in the toe area, which suggests this alternative. My guess is on the inside foot, probably closer to the ball of his foot.

Many times when there is a big toe injury a player will push more weight on the inside sole/ball of the foot. There's really no other place to go if that toe is in pain.

Sounds really bad either way.

The big toe is on the inside.  You compensate by putting weight outside.

Not while pushing an object that also moves.

If he puts weight on the outside, he'll fall over or twist the ankle. Too much weight to be using his outside portion of the foot.

In a normal setting, just walking around, you would be correct however. Either way, he's going to have crappy balance if he cannot use/touch the toe, so it may not even matter what portion of the foot he's using.

Heels don't have toes, and four toes don't make a foot. He's fudged if he's standing on his heel already. Even if he deals with pain well, no one can expect him to last the entire season.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

Looks like you guys solved the blister mystery. On to finding the great white whale. You must have both stayed at a holiday inn express last night.

This is what happens when you rely on so many injured players to come back 100%. Not all are going to come back to be the player they were. This is on Dom for not having a plan in case some of these injured players don't come back.
