Video: Chad Johnson used to soak in teammates pee to prevent injuries

If you didn’t think former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson was crazy, then you might want to check out this story. Apparently, Johnson had a pretty odd way of dealing with minor injuries.

He joined the “Mike & Mike Show” Wednesday morning and he shared a pretty crazy story. Ochocinco claims that he used to soak his ankles in his teammates’ urine, which was, in his mind, the best way to heal a sprained ankle.

Here’s how Johnson’s “fool proof plan” worked:

1. Collect urine from teammates
2. Heat it up in the microwave
3. Soak ankles, instant healing powers
4. Use urine as a broth for soup

Okay, that last part isn’t true and pretty gross, but this whole situation is pretty disgusting anyway. Sure, you supposedly should rub urine on a jellyfish sting, but this is a little extreme.

However, Johnson rarely missed games due to injury, so maybe his strange method worked. We will let somebody else test his theory.
