LINCOLN — There's finally a medical term to attach to Taylor Martinez's foot injury that changed the course of Nebraska's football season.
In an email sent Wednesday by Martinez's father, Casey Martinez, to several news outlets — including The World Herald — a doctor in North Carolina described Taylor's injury as a “plantar plate tear” of the second metatarsophalangeal joint, or “2nd MPJ,” in his left foot.
