Improper footwear is apparently the source of Antonio Brown's foot injury.
PFT Live's Chris Simms reported the Oakland Raiders wide receiver used a cryotherapy machine without the required protection and suffered frostbite on his feet as a result.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that Brown had visited a foot specialist and is day-to-day with the injury.
Raiders head coach Jon Gruden confirmed the team was "gathering information" about Brown and that the seven-time Pro Bowler isn't at training camp, per Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Fans knew something was wrong when Brown shared a photo of his feet in an Instagram story.
While the circumstances of his injury are unusual, the effects can be serious. Manny Harris saw his NBA career derailed when he suffered freezer burn after he wore wet socks during a cryotherapy session.
Brown doesn't seem to be in danger of a similar fate, but somewhat worryingly, Bair noted Gruden "refused to speculate on his readiness" for Oakland's season opener against the Denver Broncos on Sept. 9.
what a dumbass
frostbite is not something to screw around with regardless of how you got it ... people lose limbs from this ... so to injure himself by not being able to follow simple instructions to protect himself was not a smart move
