In what would be a strange turn of events, it appears Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown may have frostbite.
The question around the Oakland Raiders recently has been the status of Antonio Brown. The star receiver has been sitting out recently with an abnormal injury to his feet, but nobody, including Brown, knows exactly what has been the issue.
Pictures surfaced of the injury, and it was assumed by most that Brown just had blisters, and would be back soon. (If you have not yet seen the pictures, you may be better off staying away from them). The start to camp for Brown has been summarized as “disappointing” by Coach Gruden, but the injury that he has was a mystery to even those inside of the organization.
Brown was sent to a specialist to gain more info on the injury, and most inside and around the organization believed that it would be nothing serious.
PFT Live host Chris Simms discussed the matter on his show, stating that the picture did not appear to be blisters, but was not sure exactly what was going on.
After his show, someone came to Simms with some info stating that Antonio Brown may be suffering from frost bite.
There is a rumor going around that Antonio Brown entered into a cryotherapy machine with the wrong footwear, and the machine burned his feet. Antonio Brown has went to see a specialist, and no official news has yet been released.
There is a chance that this rumor is false, considering Brown not only participated in some live goes in practice, but also looked great in them. Brown sat out of practices previous to this, so the fact that he had the injury before those days would lead one to believe that the injury is not all that serious.
If true, there is no timeline for Brown’s return, and he will more than likely visit more specialists. If this rumor is false, we should expect to hear more news about Brown’s injury sooner rather than later.
