Default Sweed injured

I just received a text that Limas Sweed injured his achilles in the final minicamp workout.

Ugh, hopefully it's not severe.

I was hoping he'd at least earn the #4 WR spot this year.

From the Steelers Facebook page....... "In the last of five minicamp practices, Limas Sweed injured his Achilles. Coach Mike Tomlin said Sweed's status will be determined by an examination, but a torn Achilles tendon is an injury that can require up to 12 months of rehabilitation."

Wow. Hopefully it's not torn. The kid was probably trying too hard.

What's up with that? Would you be laughing if it happened to you?

I feel bad for the kid...he seemed so excited about proving himself this year. Now we may never know how good he could be.

Unfortunately, I think we have our answer...

The guy can't catch a break, I apologize mightily over some colored pixels.

I can assure you I wasn't laughing maniacally in real life.

Edit: And yes I have laughed over myself sometimes when crazy stuff keeps happening to me.
