“Wanted to let everyone know that I’m alright,” Boynton’s tweet said. “Feeling a lot better today. Thank you for your concerns. Thank you to (Des Moines Buccaneers) staff, (Mercy One Hospital in Des Moines), and (Force trainer Derrick Grieshaber) for the help and treatment. Huge win for the boys last night! Look forward to the playoff push.”
