The pictures of Antonio Brown’s injured feet are hideous

Oakland Raiders’ Antonio Brown during NFL football minicamp Tuesday, June 11, 2019, in Alameda, Calif.

Blisters are boomin’.

At least on Antonio Brown’s feet.

Based on what Brown is sharing on social media, the former Steelers star is having significant problems with his feet as he prepares for the 2019 season in Oakland.


What is that? MRSA? Is he walking on hot coals as part of his training routine now? Did he run to Drew Rosenhaus’ office to demand a new contract after Michael Thomas got his big deal in New Orleans?

This isn’t the first time Brown has shared a look at his fabulous feet. Remember back in 2017 when he posted this shot of his injured toe?

Brown did not take part in practice Sunday or the open-media portion of “family day” afterward. The Athletic has reported that Brown saw a specialist regarding his blistered feet.

I always knew that Brown had no soul. But I always thought the soles of his feet were fine.

After all, remember the legendary stories of how he became “Tony Toe Tap?” He reportedly would pick up towels with his toes just to strengthen his feet.

Maybe he hurt his feet slamming on the brakes too hard while speeding down McKnight Road?

Regardless, in his first training camp with Oakland, Brown has barely been a participant because of the issue.

Your move “Hard Knocks!”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
