Tight end Clay Harbor was placed on injured reserve last August with the Saints and missed the 2017 season. Then this offseason, the 30-year-old suffered another… well, I guess you could call it a football-related injury.
Harbor, you see, was a contestant on ABC's "The Bachelorette" and during a group date on Monday night's episode, a football game broke out (as it does) and while stiff-arming an opponent to the ground Harbor got hurt. We know this because he said, "I got injured playing football on 'The Bachelorette,' adding: "That's pretty funny."
Which is why Harbor took to Twitter on Monday night to update his status, saying:
“I want to thank everyone for the love and support! Definitely the hardest decision I’ve ever made but I believe everything happens for a reason. I am working hard to get back on the field and turn this negative into a positive.”
Of course, we also now realize that, given the magic of TV, Harbor actually injured himself months ago and now he's fully healthy for football.
