Ex Jet Henry Anderson Hoping to Return from Minor Stroke

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Carolina Panthers defensive end Henry Anderson said he’s hopeful he can return to action on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks after suffering what he called “a minor stroke” in October because of a blood clot in his brain.

The 31-year-old Anderson said he felt numbness in his legs and his speech became slurred on Oct. 22, the day before the Panthers were to host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His wife took him to a hospital, where he remained for several days receiving treatment.

The Panthers placed Anderson on the non-football illness list the following week, but the team never provided an explanation.

“It was a blood clot in the brain, that’s what the issue was,” Anderson told reporters on Wednesday. “We got it resolved pretty quickly.”

Anderson said he now realizes he’s fortunate it wasn’t any worse.

“I didn’t know much about strokes but I found out more about them and realized I got pretty lucky avoiding anything serious and long term,” Anderson said. “I am glad that I was kind of oblivious when it happened because I would have been a little more panicked had I realized what was going on. But like I said, I got pretty lucky.”  

Anderson has since met with specialists and had numerous blood tests to make sure he doesn’t have any lingering issues. He has been cleared to resume playing football.

Anderson said doctors never determined what caused the blood clot.

“Every test we looked at came negative,” Anderson said. “I think it was something that I got unlucky because they ran a ton of tests and everything was good. There wasn’t anything that showed up or they could point to that they said could have caused it.”

Carolina designated Anderson to return from the non-football injury list on Wednesday and interim coach Steve Wilks said he hopes Anderson will get back on the field Sunday.

Teammate Brian Burns said he was shocked when he heard the news.

“It was scary to me when we found out he had a stroke because he was so young and he’s an athlete,” Burns said. “He is like in top-tier shape. I feel like most of the times when I hear about strokes it is older people or obese people or maybe because of a heat stroke, or something like that.”

Anderson is in his eighth season. He was a third-round draft pick in 2015 by the Indianapolis Colts. He also spent time with the New England Patriots and New York Jets before signing with the Panthers this offseason.

Glad he's okay.  A few months before my mother's death, a doctor told us that, over many years of time, she'd likely suffered a series of minor strokes that gradually degraded her decision making and personality.  I had no idea until then that such a thing could even happen, but it made sense given how she'd behaved since my siblings and I became adults.  She never told us anything about any symptoms.

is this related to PED's or steroids? How do athletes that are in like shape get these strokes that you would think would happen to unhealthy slobs

Eh, hard to say. There is still a lot they don't know about strokes and there are a myriad of causes.

People freak out when this is mentioned but it wasn't all that long ago more people would see clearly what is going on. 2020 brought on a series of events that thrust upon the globe untested, unproven, dangerous technology that has brought on never before seen issues. "Trust the science," was said, over and over. Yet when it came down to it, hundreds, if not thousands, of doctors, scientists, and others willing to look tried to warn society, to no avail. And now we have no choice but to deal with the repercussions. Those of you that participated, the sooner you accept you were duped and make efforts to get help the better off you will be. No guarantees, of course, but if you find the right doctor, there are efforts that can be made and tests that can be run to try and head off a situation like this before a catastrophic event occurs. Life is full of trial and error, ups and downs, and learning opportunities. But if you don't take heed and shift when a mistake is made you risk allowing your set back to become something much, much worse. God speed to you all that you don't take that long to get there. And for Heaven's sake don't take any more of these poison shots.

I’m honestly amazed that after two years of the experts being wrong about everything people still have trust in them. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the vaccines are problematic to say the least.

You guys have every right to feel the way you do, to believe what you wrote.

You don't have the write to post any of that stuff here. So in this context feel free to wish Henry well or just stay out of the thread.

Thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

They have already admitted and the studies have proven that the risk of myocarditis and clots are higher after the MRNA jabs but the cognative dissonance makes people freak out if you bring it up......it's fascinating and bizarre at the same time.
