Strange injuries are nothing new to the world of sports, but Brandon Marshall found a way to give us something we’ve never seen before. The Broncos receiver needed surgery on his right arm and is expected to miss a majority of all offseason activities after wrasslin with some family members, slipping on a McDonald’s bag and crashing through his television.
I understand I’ve had my problems, but from what people are saying, they’re trying to twist this thing around to make me sound like some kind of bad guy,” Marshall said. “I don’t care what anyone says. I’m telling you what happened.” …
“We woke up early in the morning, probably 7 o’clock, to go jet skiing,” Marshall said. “There were probably 10 of us, maybe more. We got to horseplaying and I slipped on a McDonald’s bag. I went hand-first into an entertainment system and, in trying to bridge myself, I went through the TV.”
Marshall acknowledged earlier that he had slipped on a McDonald’s bag, but an NFL Network report Monday added details of his wrestling with family members. According to the report, Marshall severed an artery, a vein and a nerve in his right forearm, along with tendons to five muscles. The injury is expected to sideline him for several weeks, but Marshall said he expects to be ready for training camp in late July.
This might be the first time in the history of McDonald’s food that the effects are actually visible on the outside. We all know exactly what that crap can do to your insides and, frankly, we kinda think a severed artery is getting off easy compared to the hours of bubble-guts following a Big Mac!
