NFL players launch into each other at ridiculous speeds, with crazy amounts of force behind pretty much every single hit we see during a game.
Because of that, injuries tend to be plentiful in the National Football League, with teams injury reports sometimes looking more reminiscent of a movie's end credits rather than that of a sporting club.
However, today there has been an injury reported that is unlike any other we have seen before. Dez Bryant has allegedly hurt himself while making soup. Yes, soup.

According to a report from ESPN, it has emerged that Bryant suffered what is being called an “extremely minor” injury that stemmed from cutting carrots for a homemade soup.
“He’s got a cut on the inside of his hand, so he wasn’t able to catch balls today,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said is reported to have said.
“He did a good job moving around, though. I think he’s feeling better and better and better.”
It seems like the Dallas franchise may be investing in a chef for Bryant, so as to avoid any future accidents. “Yeah,” Garrett said with a smile after being asked about a personal chef, “we’ve got to address that somehow.”
While this is very embarrassing and something that we should be able to laugh at for a while, at least Dez isn't Dustin Penner, who once injured his back in 2012 while eating a large stack of pancakes. That will always be the best food-related sports injury.
