When we mentioned in the Beanie Wells injury post that the word “cart” when used in the football context rarely is a good thing unless preceded by the word “golf,” that’s not an automatic proposition, either.
Lions receiver Bryant Johnson has started his first camp in Detroit on the non-football injury list due to an offseason golf cart accident.
“Bryant, unfortunately, had a golf cart accident back in early July,” coach Jim Schwartz said, according to Tom Kowalski of Mlive.com. “It was something we were well aware of. We took a couple of trips down to Atlanta to see him.
“There are no orthopedic issues with it, a lot of superficial wounds, road rash and those kinds of things. We’ll take our time . . . with him.”
Johnson also talked about the mishap.
“In the community that I live in, everybody uses golf carts to get around. [The golf cart] got out of control and it was on two wheels and it fell over. I was driving, and it fell over on my side. It slid about 10 yards. There was a hill, but it wasn’t a steep hill.”
We suppose it looked a little something like this.
