Aubrey Huff placed on DL for anxiety disorder
Aubrey Huff placed on the DL with anxiety disorder
Craig Calcaterra Apr 25, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT
Aubrey Huff has missed the past few Giants games with what was originally referred to as a ?family emergency.? It may be more complicated than that, however, as the Giants have placed him on the 15-day disabled list with anxiety disorder.
Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports that Huff is ?getting treatment,? though it has not yet been specified whether the treatment is for general anxiety or something else.
Obviously these things are always touchy, personal situations so information may be difficult to come by. But we?ll update if and when anything new comes to light.

Sounds like a work-around of the roster to me. You don't just develop an anxiety disorder, it's something he would have been battling through his whole career. This story either isn't over, or is wrong.

I paid a lot of money in college to study these. It would have to be panic attack levels to cause something like this, and the odds of those spontaneously developing at his age out of the blue are REALLY not good.
It's harder to lie about an injury because they can be checked and will heal eventually. If he never comes back this season, a mental disorder could easily cause that and no one would cry foul (assuming it was legit), but if he missed the season with a pulled hammy, it would be looked at.

There are a ton of anxiety disorders, generalized, social, OCD, PTSD, specific phobias...but aside from PTSD which is brought on by a specific event, the rest are there beneath the surface waiting for the right conditions to show up. They don't hide until you're 40 and start showing up though, he would have had some kind of indications of them being there being a pro athlete with the high stress environment.
