    I can't find a definitive explanation of what's wrong with Corey Simon anywhere. The closest I can get is that it's a non-football related illness/injury but nobody seems to know for sure. If they do know then nobody is willing to speak about it.

    The fact that he even took a physical makes me think that it's not something that instantly rules out the possibility of playing football. Then again it might have been a mere formality and the result a forgone conclusion.

    Didn't he balloon up in weight? (Which is a lot since he was already a BIG guy)

    I'm guessing it was a heart problem, maybe similar to what Kris Jenkins and Reggie White had.

    Simon missed the Colts' Super Bowl season with a knee injury and an undisclosed illness, reportedly polyarthritis.

    Polyarthritis is any type of arthritis which involves five or more joints - an inflammation of two, three or four joints is an oligoarthritis.

    Polyarthritis is most often caused by an auto-immune disorder such as Rheumatoid arthritis, Psoriatic arthritis, and Lupus erythematosus but can also be caused by infections such as Ross River Virus. It is recommended that individuals with this affliction sleep on a firm mattress and a flat pillow. Polyarthritis may be experienced at any age and is not gender specific.
