Definitely not a good offensive showing...thankfully Stokley was in the right place at the right time. Do we know if he uses a pump or not?

I believe he uses the pump or a pod during the week and in pregame warmups and has someone to help him monitor his sugar closely during the games.

Yeah I wasn't sure. I can't imagine putting it on and taking it off as you can you can be needed on the field at anytime...doesn't exactly give you a lot of time to monitor and/or correct. Plus you'd have to be mindful that exercise makes you more sensitive to insulin. Couldn't imagine that one.
