A quick google search on 'turf toe' found this:
"Turf Toe is a sprain of the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint
of the first toe. That is, the joint of the toe to the foot is sprained. The injury usually results from a hyperflexion mechanism
; the toe is bent to far upward. This can result from a hard push off on a rigid surface, having the toe forcibly flexed while being tackled, or by stopping short allowing the toe to jam in the toe box of the shoe. These mechanisms cause damage to the ligaments of the joint and the joint capsule."
"The immediate treatment for all grades of sprains is the same, Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. This is the standard for acute care of any athletic injury."
