When Treadmills Attack
April 16, 2008 | | comment on this post
Don’t try telling Gabe Watson that treadmills are a good, safe way to work out.
The Arizona Cardinals’ nose tackle will miss off-season practices after undergoing surgery to repair a broken kneecap, an injury he suffered last week when he fell off a treadmill.
The procedure was serious enough that it will keep Watson limited during training camp, but the Cards are hopefully he’ll be ready to begin the regular season on time.
If not, look for backup Alan Branch, the team’s 2007 second round pick, to get his chance.
Some friendly advice to Mr. Watson: Gabe, you may want to read the instructions next time. This is not the intended use of this device.
