FC Dallas midfielder David Ferreira is expected to miss about six to eight weeks due to a broken foot during a preseason exhibition. With the right care and precautions, his broken foot can be healed so that he plays soccer again. A broken foot is a common injury among athletes. The seriousness of a broken foot depends on the type and severity of the fracture that you might have. A severely broken foot may require surgery and a not so severe fracture might require casting, pain medications, and weight bearing exercises to bring back the bone to its fullest strength and potential.
