SJ - September 15, 2021

Ryan Fitzpatrick left the Washington Football Team's game on Sunday early with a hip injury.  An injury that is expected to keep him off the field for a while.

According to a radio caller, Fitzpatrick first injured his hip on a waterslide.  The caller said the WFT's quarterback was at a waterpark he frequents with his kid when he "whacked his hip on the fast slide."

From Audacy:

"I'm pretty sure Ryan Fitzpatrick reinjured his hip against the Chargers. Whereas you guys saw round two, we saw round one at Symington Waterpark in Leesburg at Ida Lee on the last day," the caller claimed. "Three times a week he brings all of his seven million boys up there. They go on the slow slide, he always goes on the fast slide. And then, about mid-afternoon, it looked like he whacked his hip on the fast slide, and then he didn't do no sliding the rest of the day.

"Everybody at the park saw he was going around, like an awkward gait, or a shuffle walk the rest of the afternoon, and he parked it in his chair. I think he reaggravated it during that game."

This is pure Washington Football Team luck if it's a true story.  Losing a quarterback to a waterpark injury has to be one of the more insane ways to lose your starter.  We might not ever get to the bottom of this one.
