Seeing a man’s feet is never that pleasant a sight, but seeing the ones that Antonio Brown, now of the Oakland Raiders, displayed last week was not only unsettling but also mysterious. It was said that he was missing time on the practice field, annoyingly enough to coach Jon Gruden, because of them, but no reason was given.
We finally have answers, though, and it all has to do with the overuse of cryotherapy coupled with Brown’s lack of using adequate foot protection. Due to that combination, Brown ended up with frostbite, and that is now what has been causing him to miss time. It’s kind of understandable now why Gruden would be upset, seeing as how this could have, should have been, theoretically avoided.
