The Facts: Clay missed three games last season with a knee injury, and during that time off he thought about ways he could get healthier. His top conclusion: Eat less sugar.
Diehards Line: Clay told the Buffalo News that he’s been experimenting with different nutrition plans during his NFL career, but he’s taken eating properly particularly seriously since that injury nine months ago. He’s also been trying to tell young teammates to take their nutrition seriously — not that they often listen. As PFT notes, Clay has also cut out red meat and started eating more plant-based food. He briefly tried going vegan, but that lasted less than a month, and he now eats chicken and fish. He said he’s been feeling great in Organized Team Activities and feels primed for an outstanding season. Clay led the Bills in receiving yards last year, and they’d be thrilled to see a healthier Clay have an even bigger year in 2018.
