You might be fed up with how things have unfolded for Las Vegas Raiders right tackle Trent Brown. You may be disappointed at how things have unfolded since the Silver and Black gave him a four-year, $66 million contract. We don’t blame you one bit if you think he has underperformed. However, his health should be off-limits.
Things aren’t getting better for Trent Brown
Brown dealt with a calf injury for quite some time in 2020. Although it looked like he had recovered from it when he played in Week 5, his availability on the field took another hit when he tested positive for COVID-19. After missing a few weeks, he had an IV mishap that caused air to enter his bloodstream. The situation was quite serious as he had to stay at a hospital overnight.
Things aren’t getting better for Brown and he’s back on the reserve/COVID-19 per Vic Tafur of the Athletic. It’s uncertain what were the circumstances behind his return, but we should get an update soon. In the meantime, we can’t speculate and think the worse.
The Raiders are genuinely concerned with Trent Brown’s health
We can definitely look into how things will eventually play out. Nevertheless, it would be reckless to come up with conjectures at this moment. We simply don’t know what happened and it doesn’t help to call Brown unprofessional, irresponsible, or anything of that sort.
All Brown’s teammates and coaches are worried about him. They aren’t thinking about when he will play again. They aren’t saying the tackle robbed the team when he signed his four-year deal. That’s the last thing that is going through their minds. While there will be time to talk about his future with the team, this is not the moment. In fact, it’s even pointless to wonder when he will play again.
At this point, Brown’s health is delicate. The last of his concerns is whether he loves playing for the Raiders or when he will step on the football field once again. That doesn’t matter right now. At this moment, we all should hope he gets better, just like everyone in the Raiders organization does.
