How to avoid cellulite on the field
The NFL’s health and safety standards have increased scrutiny for players, coaches, and teams.
A report from ESPN’s Outside the Lines in 2018 identified some players and coaches who were under the impression that they would be protected from certain diseases if they were exposed to certain types of cellulite.
The report stated that these players and their coaches were also unaware of the dangers posed by the condition.
According to Inside the Lines, a number of NFL players were unaware that certain types (such as polyurethane foam) could lead to a condition called cellulite, a condition that can cause the skin to become thin and wrinkly and lead to cellulite-related injuries.
The NFLPA is pushing for an independent review of the league’s standards and is calling for a comprehensive evaluation of the issue.
The National Football League has released a statement on the issue that reads in part: The NFL is aware of the recent reports regarding the condition known as cellulite and is working with the NFLPA to provide guidance for all clubs regarding the proper handling of the condition as well as ensuring the health and well-being of the players who are affected.
The statement also notes that the NFL has a long history of encouraging health and wellness initiatives and working with our teams to provide them with the best health care possible.
The league has yet to comment on the new reports.
