Brought to you by FanDuel: Football season is upon us, Rankers, and with it also comes the knowledge that a season-ending injury could strike your favorite player (or more importantly, your best fantasy player) at any moment. Injuries on the gridiron are very much a part of the game (it's football, not futbol). However, THIS is a list of injuries suffered by players doing literally anything else but playing football. We're talking walking the dog, playing with kids, hanging in the club...these are grown men who can withstand a hit from a 400-pound linebacker but not a romp with a puppy. No joke.

If you think you've seen the worst sports injuries in the history of the game, you might have; but THESE, these are the dumbest sports injuries in the history of the NFL (not to be confused with all the other professional athletes who hurt themselves in stupid ways).

*Note* this list does not include injuries suffered on the field while the game wasn't being played. No stupid touchdown dance injuries or freak sideline accidents here (although these guys have found themselves sidelined from plenty of stupid sports injuries like that as well).
