NFL players take care of their feet
NFL players are taking care of the foot treatment, which can lead to swelling and swelling in the calf, and are also using an anti-inflammatory drug to treat their inflammation.
The league has been advised to change the treatment plan.
NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith told reporters on Wednesday that the players will continue to have the foot-specific treatment, but the league has changed the protocol to avoid a repeat of the 2010 and 2012 cases.
The players will now have the same amount of foot treatment once a month, with the amount of time to take it and take it well, Smith said.
“It’s a very, very serious situation, and it needs to be dealt with very seriously,” he said.
The new protocol comes after a series of cases of foot-related swelling and infection, including in the case of former Philadelphia Eagles running back Marshawn Lynch, who played in the NFL from 2010 to 2013.
Lynch has been prescribed anti-inflammatories by doctors, but he has been unable to get them to work on his foot and is now facing the possibility of missing the rest of the season.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said on Wednesday in a statement that the league was “looking at all options” in response to the new guidelines.
The NFLPA had said in May that it was “deeply concerned” about the need for new protocols, which it said would put players’ health at risk.
In a statement, the NFLPA said it has called for the NFL to “develop a clear protocol and set of standards” for foot treatment.
The statement said the players had “worked very hard to get the best possible treatment for themselves and their families.”
In February, the league announced a new protocol that includes the use of a “minimalist” foot-care protocol.
It said it would “require the use” of the anti-nausea medication arbaclofen for the treatment of inflammation and swelling, but it did not specify the dosage.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said that players should “take the time to feel good” and feel “well.”
