Werder Bremen striker Marko Arnautovic tears knee ligament while playing with dog
Here’s our promise to you from LBS: If the ridiculous injuries keep coming to close out the week, we’ll just keep posting them. Within the past 36 hours, we have had no choice but to flood our page with the bizarre misfortunes of athletes from various sports. To recap, we’ve had David Price injuring himself while toweling off, David Robertson spraining his foot by falling down the stairs, and a Colorado quarterback breaking his foot by walking. Werder Bremen striker Marko Arnautovic may top them all. According to Yahoo! Sports, Arnautovic tore a ligament in his knee on Thursday while playing with his dog.
“Marko has informed us of this incident,” Werder Bremen coach Thomas Schaaf said. “This is frustrating as we are now with one option less (in attack) for the coming weeks.”
Team doctors estimate Arnautovic will miss at least six weeks. According to the story, he was outside playing with his dog when his foot got caught up in the grass and his knee twisted. I’d be lying if I said my dog had never knocked me on my can before while playing in the yard, but I’ve been fortunate enough to avoid serious injury. In other words, I feel Arnautovic’s pain. Except I don’t, if that makes sense.
Talk about one of those weeks.
