In brief: Typically not

Though turf toe is very painful, it is usually not sufficient trauma to cause secondary osteoarthritis.
However, almost everyone develops osteoarthritis in the great toe with age.

In brief: UNLIKELY

Turf toe usually is a singular event and will heal without long lasting problems.
If you injure the toe recurrently there is a chance of arthritis developing many years later but you would have had to chronically and repeatedly hurt the toe.
