There have been some crazy injuries in the past but I am not sure I have ever heard of a candy injury. Dallas Cowboys safety Barry Church who missed all of last season with an achilles injury, missed practice on Monday from an injury stemming from a chipped tooth while eating a cherry jolly rancher.
“The pain was crazy,” Church said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I was numbed up yesterday because of the dentist appointment. They didn’t want me to practice, but I will be out there today (Tuesday).”
I can only imagine the amount of of teasing he will have to put up with after this one. Who knows though, maybe he can pick up an endorsement.
