It didn’t take long for Antonio Brown to make an appearance on the second episode of Hard Knocks on Tuesday night, as the Raiders WR showed off his injured feet in the opening minutes of the episode.
Brown, whose wildly insane issues with his helmet seem to be over, suffered frostbite on his feet when he didn’t wear the proper socks on his feet when he recently did a round of cryotherapy.
He showed the bottom of his feet to the NFL Films crew and called them “circumcised” as he put them up for the cameras before working out on his own:
He also explained on the episode how he suffered the injury.Per ProFootballTalk:
“I got out, and I felt my foot burning,” Brown told the NFL Films crew. “I was like, ‘Man, I feel a hot sensation.’ The next like 24 hours it swelled up. It got really big. I couldn’t really walk or put pressure. The doctor came over, drained a little out. Scalpel the next day. Freaking scissors the next day. Just kind of let it leak all out. As everything leaked all out, I was able to put a little pressure. Thankfully, my trainer was working me out in the midst of my freaking. . . I can’t be on my feet.
“Now, it’s just like new skin, I’m just trying to get my feet used to feeling that, but I feel like I’ve just got a . . . big whoopee cushion. You know?”
Well, that doesn’t sound great for the star wide receiver or the Raiders, who expect big things out of him this year.
So yeah, it should be interesting to see how quickly he can get back to being 100 percent.
