Cleveland Browns Chris Hubbard reveals mental wellness struggles

Chris Hubbard took a ballroom of nearly 300 people today by means of his psychological health and fitness journey on Tuesday, and the Browns offensive tackle did not hold anything at all back.

The demise of his grandpa and “sidekick,” Jimmy Myers, to prostate cancer threw Hubbard into a deep depression in the course of his freshman year at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

The murder of his 19-calendar year-previous cousin, Shannon Fields, shot in the again of the head at a hometown Columbus, Georgia, nightclub when Hubbard was 21, prompted him to go away university for two months. In a dialogue before that working day, Fields told him he was ready to get off the streets, escape his environment of gangs and drugs, and questioned if he could come are living with Hubbard in Birmingham. Hubbard agreed.

“It was a lot more than just cousins, we were like brothers,” Hubbard said. “It strike me difficult. I did not rest, I didn’t try to eat, I missing a great deal of fat. I felt like I could not protect him. You constantly want to protect the men and women that you enjoy.”
