Brief Answer:
Arteries obstruction is possible.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Thank you for the query.

If the foot is also cold, arteries obstruction is the case. I suggest him to do not wait with this. He should consult a surgeon as soon as possible. Otherwise he may loose his foot.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
