Houston Texans running back Arian Foster turned the fantasy football world upside down on Wednesday.
Last season’s league-leading rusher posted what he said was an MRI image of his strained hamstring on Twitter along with this message: “This is an MRI of my hamstring, The white stuff surrounding the muscle is known in the medical world as anti-awesomeness.”
The image showed a significant amount of “white stuff.”
Internet search engines lit up as draft-prepping fantasy players--and maybe even a few Texans fans--searched for the truth. The Texans have been calling the injury a “mild strain.”
After almost five hours of Twitter frenzy, Foster downplayed the injury. tweeting: “If I had a ‘significant injury’ why post it? I’ll be fine, it was jus meant to make fun of the whole situation. Humor is lost nowadays.”
