David Irving from the Dallas Cowboys suffered a pretty terrible injury at practice the other day. Broken arm? Concussion? Fractured ribs? Nope. It's worse than all of those examples. Irving had his nipple ring torn out!
First of all, why does a defensive end in the NFL have a nipple ring? Second of all, why would you wear it to play football? Irving says that he got it because the girls like it, so we can't really argue with that reasoning. And in case you were wondering, he didn't lose the whole nipple.
Best of luck for a speedy recovery, David!
