Almond Board |

Isles was unable to travel with the USA Rugby Men's Eagles on trips to Paris and London with a high ankle sprain. When ThePostGame talked to Isles in May, he said he was "operating at 95 percent," while recovering at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista. Isles noted he was cleansing his body with an organized diet of two full breakfasts, a hearty lunch, a protein-filled dinner and "a lot of California almonds."
