NAPA, California – The recipient of Oakland Raiders, Antonio Brown, provided the most detailed – and graphic – description of his frozen feet. Take off his socks and shoes – "Want to see it?" He teased the camera – to show the flaking soles of his feet.
"My feet are pretty much trimmed, right?" he said in the interview that took place outside the Raiders training camp. "Hopefully my feet will be reborn and I can run faster, I'll be sorry later, thanks."
And while it was discovered that Brown was burned in July during the holidays in Paris, the recipient of Pro Bowl confirmed earlier reports that it was the result of a cryotherapy mishap.
"I tried cryotherapy, they covered my body and I got out and I felt my foot burn," he said. "Well, I thought, man, I felt hot, so the next 24 hours it swelled up, got really big and I could not really walk or put pressure on, the doctor came over, emptied himself a bit, scalpel." the next day a damn scissors the next day and just let it all run out, so that when everything runs out, I could put a lot of pressure, luckily my coach has trained me, I can do that I'm not up, so I crawl in workouts, just do other things and everything will get better. I try to get my feet used to it, but I feel like I have a big patch of an open Whoopee pillow, you know?
Brown did not wear proper footwear when he entered the cryotherapy chamber, a source opposite ESPN.
Brown, who also lost the NFL's complaint to wear his old helmet on Monday, returned to the hospital on Tuesday following a two-week absence Raiders Camp – and not the flap over his helmet – was the real reason why he was absent looking for a therapy that included a laser treatment.
Neither would go into even more detail on how the injury occurred, Rosenhaus said legal action might "possibly" be prosecuted against the cryotherapy lab.
Brown still walked cautiously when he arrived at the camp.
Raiders coach Jon Gruden was not sure if Brown would be in one of the three remaining But when asked if he expects Brown to be ready At the regular season opener on September 9, Gruden said, "Oh, yes."
