Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is definitely not the end of a digit from a large carnivorous theropod. The only potentials from the Morrison formation where it was found, would be different species of ceratasaurs, allosaurs, and torvosaurus, right? and they, along with most carnivorous theropods have claws at the end of every digit, including the little foot&heel stubbies, don't they?

 

wouldnt this have to be from something without claws? Or at least no claw on this?

Don't all of their digits end with this type of structured bone?

It looks like a partial digit. The broken end looks to resemble a claw and might be what is described as a “claw”. Not sure what digit it would be from but @Troodon might be able to be more specific.

Four now, for the first metatarsal and it looks to be in decent shape.

exactly as others have said.  Tough to tell the size, but Allosaurus is a good bet.

Thats what it's supposed to be. I guess also maybe a young torvosaurus?
