As a goof, Foster posted a picture of his MRI on Twitter.
“The white stuff surrounding the muscle is known in the medical world as anti-awesomeness,” Foster wrote.
The ESPN medical team sprung into action. John Clayton said Foster’s hammy was torn, presumably after consulting a medical professional.
And then: “ESPN’s Dr. Michael Kaplin thinks Arian Foster could be out three to four weeks with his hamstring injury. He’s done light jogging for 2 days,” Clayton wrote.
Foster wonders why so serious?
“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,” Foster wrote.
We’re not sure what to make of ESPN’s report, but we generally don’t trust medical opinions from third-party doctors not dealing with the patient. They are just guessing.
We also suspect the Texans, in a fit of anti-awesomeness, will advise Foster not to post any more MRIs.
