'Frostbite. Skin peeling. Iguana skin.' Here's what playing in Minnesota did to Kam Chancellor's hands

SEATTLE – How cold was it when the Seattle Seahawks played in Minnesota earlier this month?

Cold enough to give Kam Chancellor “iguana skin.”

The Seahawks safety posted a video to Instagram on Friday afternoon showing his hands – or at least what’s left of them – almost three weeks after the game.

“This what it looks like playing in -21 degrees weather with the wind chill,” he says on the video. “Frostbite. Skin peeling. Iguana skin.”


The Seahawks beat the Vikings in the game, which was the third-coldest in NFL history.
