Football is a dangerous game. Every Sunday, these gladiators step out onto the gridiron and put their bodies in harm's way for our entertainment. Sometimes a big hit results in a broken bone, or a torn ligament, and then other times a player gets a small cut on his finger after trying to cook up some homemade soup.
Earlier this week, the Dallas Cowboys’ Dez Bryant—one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, according to ESPN—suffered such an injury, slicing his middle and ring fingers while chopping up some carrots for a nice fall stew.
Bryant, who once claimed he maintained a 3.1 percent body fat by eating five slices of Pizza Hut pizza on a nightly basis, also suffered a tibial plateau fracture last month.
Still recovering from two equally harrowing injuries, the wide receiver somehow made it to practice on Wednesday, but couldn’t catch any passes, despite describing his laceration as "extremely, extremely minor.”
