Update On Kellen Winslow’s Testicles

Posted by Mike on October 16, 2008

After not being able to play in last week’s against the New York Giants because according to Pro Football Talk “his balls swelled to the size of grapefruits.” Many people wondered how and why this happened. Was it a football injury ? Or was this just a major case of blue-balls ? Deadspin has the answer and it’s one of two possible things; An STD, which in being a professional athlete is always a possibility. You’re not a true pro until you get at least one STD. The other possible explanation maybe a bit more embarrassing for Kellen Winslow, it may have been overdose of erection enhancing medication. Now that’s a problem. More from Deadspin:

According to one source, the culprit might be an overdose of erection enhancing medication. We’ve all seen the warnings that advertise to call your physician if you experience some, um, prolonged discomfort in that area for a long period of time. Yet he was in the hospital for three days, which is a long time to be laid up for something like that. The other rumored problem was just your garden variety STD, which, as noted by many health websites, can lead to some infections that cause you know, swollen parts. But a few shots and some rest and he should be set to go.

Given the possible embarrassing reasons for his injury, Winslow will most likely hide behind HIPAA laws and the whole thing will be gone and forgotten once he steps on the field. But oh to be a fly on the ball in the Browns’ training room the day before he was sent to the hospital.
