There was definitely something wrong in Cleveland, even more than the typical problems. LeCharles should get 10 million bucks out of the Browns.
Scary stuff

I'm glad he recovered (didn't die). I speak from personal experience when I say "be diligent". If you discover a quickly growing swelling area (kind of like a bee sting, but keeps growing and feels hot to the touch), get to a doctor ASAP. My son had this happen a couple years ago, and we got to a doctor early enough for an antibiotic treatment program which worked. Our doctor said it could have gone either way, and he would have lost his leg below the knee had he treatments not worked.

So early detection is important...avoid dirty towels and keep yourself clean after things like football or other close-contact sports (we think my son got his infection during a football game played in muddy nasty conditions). A good shower right after the game would have probably helped.

Just keep an eye on fast-swelling areas that come out of nowhere.
