Leonard Fournette Explains Why He Twittered About His Foot

December 28th, 2022

Coming clean.

Generally, players can get in hot water publicly discussing an injury.

No, they won’t get thrown in jail. But remember, football people are the most paranoid souls on Planet Earth. You’d think NFL teams are guarding the recipe for the Manhattan Project.

Joe swears over half the folks that work in NFL offices need counseling. If you or Joe were this paranoid about information, we’d be labeled with some sort of OCD anxiety complex.

Joe has never met or associated with a sect of people as paranoid as football people. And nothing drives football heads more nuts than a player discussing an injury. That’s why dudes can get fined by a team or coach.

So maybe that is why Playoff Lenny deleted his Twitter from earlier this week when he mentioned he has a Lisfranc injury in his foot.

Before the season, it was insinuated by someone in the Fourth Estate that the Bucs were peeved at Playoff Lenny because he was — allegedly — “a donut shy of 260.” This bothered Playoff Lenny and it has hounded him ever since because Bucs fans apparently come at him on Twitter about it.

So Playoff Lenny revealed a foot injury. Then he quickly deleted the Twitter but not before his Twitter was screenshot.

Like it or not, his message was out there.

So why did he out himself for having a serious foot injury? Playoff Lenny did a video with The33rdTeam and he said he put that info out there to shut up those hassling him that he is eating his way out of the NFL (allegedly).

You can see the video below. This nonsense that he was overweight apparently still eats at Playoff Lenny and Joe doesn’t blame him at all for wanting to set the record straight.

    Players should be banned from the twit during the season. Only bad can come of it. STFU and play the game. I guarantee someone will twist his foot at the bottom of a pile, given the opportunity.

  2. D-Rok Says:

    Add another twist to this bizarre season, and add the Case of the Extra Weight to the pile of the Case of the Missing Diagnosis.

    This coaching staff makes Jack Bauer look like an amateur.

  3. D-Rok Says:

    Oh, and I forgot the Case of the Lost Lisfranc. Only a super-sleuth could decipher what the hello is going on at OBP. I shirley cannot.

    Where’s Pink Panther when we need him?

  4. Goatfarmer Says:

    Lenny yes.

    Bowels no no no no no.

  5. D-Rok Says:

    OK, now I’m getting a little pissed, and I’m normally level-headed.

    The mysteries this year:
    1) Jensen
    2) Brady
    3) Fournette

    Other injuries, and there are MANY, like Gage and Julio, we had some reasonable explanations.

    What is going on at OBP? And that’s a serious question about serious injuries.

    Is it just me?

  6. Crickett Baker Says:

    He is playing great and DON’T piss him off, you guys. He has a fragile ego but he can still carry 10 guys a few more yards for a first down. He also knows his body better than we do. Show Lenny some love!

  7. D-Rok Says:


    I think Bowles already done pissed him off saying he isn’t the starter.

  8. Lamarcus Says:

    It just seems to me like Buc players who get called out….. Will lay an excuse : Personal issues, injury, death in family, divorces, Ftx ,etc.

    I have never seen so many excuses in 1 NFL season

  9. Rayjay1122 Says:

    The BUCS should be renamed as the Tampa Bay Boilermakers because they sure are a train wreck.

  10. unbelievable Says:

    “… apparently still eats at Playoff Lenny…”

    I see what ya did there Joe 😉

  11. Mr. Editor Says:

    Yes, a lot more mysteries. We are still trying to figure out the ‘mystery’ about JR “Easy Money” Sweezy.

  12. CleanHouse Says:

    Bill Parcells stood us up at the alter but at least we’ve got his sloppy underling 30 years past relevance.

  13. sasquatch Says:

    Pardon me if I think Lenny is full of sh!t.

  14. Redeemer Says:

    Brother D-Rok, hopefully you’ve calmed down. A hot D-Rok is like a bad omen. Good vibes only. Win and in!!! Go Bucs??!?!?

  15. Smashsquatch Says:

    I believe Lenny has a plethora of injured parts that hamper his ability to perform at peak. This can be said for everyone in the NFL who has played all season long. I still don’t understand why he uses it as an excuse for his playing weight. Lenny, are you purposefully playing overweight thinking if you can’t outrun them you may as well run through them? If so, why can’t you get a yard on third downs?

  16. gotbbucs Says:

    That guy has a brittle spirit.

  17. godlovesbucs Says:

    Are his eyes hurt, cause he is missing open lanes.

  18. Johnny U Miller Says:

    What people fail to understand here is, a true Lis Franc, is a horrible separation of the mid-foot. You don’t “play through” them. So Lenny has misspoken. I don’t know what the injury is, but it isn’t a Lis Franc.

  19. Goatfarmer Says:

    Without Lenny Bucs lose the Cadfrauds game in the desert. So easy on Lenny. He’s been throttled all year due to injury in game 1 that he refused to tell anyone about.

    Same is going on with Brady, but guaranteed we won’t hear about it til maybe after the season.

    Brady had been playing with a shoulder injury and hand injury, THAT is why his passes have been inaccurate.

    Lay off Brady!
