    Mareks tends to be a slower progressive paralysis type of disease, I wouldn't consider Mareks just yet. I would bet he injured his leg somehow.

    I did not see any thing different from his other foot like no cuts or anything so I do not know.

    Check his crop in the morning to make sure it is empty and keep him confined for a while or until he can walk well enough. Keep food and water close so he stays off his feet as much as possible.
