We’ll be in the full immersion of the Scouting Combine later this week, but for the moment, we have to sprinkle in the near-football news where we can.
According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Mets minor-leaguer and former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is nursing a sprained left ankle after proving himself unable to walk on water.
Specifically, it was an accident involving a sprinkler head from the irrigation system at the Mets complex.
“I’m trying to be smart about it and keep [the ankle] taped,” Tebow said after Sunday’s workouts.
He was scheduled for an X-ray yesterday afternoon, and if there’s no structural damage, he might still be the designated hitter in his spring training debut later today.
