Arian Foster tweeted this MRI of his hamstring yesterday along with the following message.
This is an MRI of my hamstring, The white stuff surrounding the muscle is known in the medical world as anti-awesomeness http://moby.to/zta9xp
After studying this picture of a picture on a computer screen, ESPN’s Dr. Michael Kaplin (via John Clayton) was able to report that Foster could be out 3-4 weeks. It appears that Clayton has since deleted his tweet and replaced it with one that leaves out Dr. Kaplin and a the 3-4 week projection. Clayton did state quite definitively that Foster “has a tear,” which sounds bad but doesn’t necessarily mean anything more than “strain.”
For his part Houston Chronicle writer John McClain doesn’t seem to be terribly concerned about Foster missing extended time. To which I (and all other fantasy owners) say, “yippy-ki-yay, motherf*cker!” Because of Die Hard.
Long story short: ESPN sucks, and Arian Foster probably shouldn’t publish pictures of his insides.
