Re: toe broken?

Your wife should have her foot x-rayed. Splinting is a good idea, however, the area on the side of the toe very well could be a bone fragment that could cause problems later on. With an x-ray, you can make sure that the phalanges (the bones that make up the toe) are in good position and will heal correctly.

Good luck
