The latest on the Andrew Luck front comes from Colts general manager Chris Ballard saying his calf strain has turned into a high-ankle issue, and the team considers him “likely” to miss all of preseason. As alarming as this whole situation is beginning to sound, there may be a simple cure. According to former wide receiver Chad Johnson, anyway, who is advocating for Luck to soak his injured ankle in warm urine.
Johnson is a man speaking from experience, of course:
At first read, this may sound like a joke, but it’s not. In 2016, Johnson said on ESPN radio he would use warm urine form his teammates to help cure ankle sprains.
Talk about a home remedy. It’s hard to say if other players have also tried this. Because, well, who else besides Chad Ochocinco would admit to such a thing? But, hey, if it works and keeps you on the field, who are we to judge? And if we are being honest: Andrew Luck with an ankle soaked in warm urine is better than no Andrew Luck at all.
