Tim Tebow suffers bizarre injury during New York Mets' spring training
As spring training gets underway, plenty of MLB players are going to get injured as they try to get back into the swing (pun intended) of things.
However, it’s also a time for bizarre injuries, as baseball seems to be a magnet for such rare occurrences. On Sunday, it was former Florida QB and current SEC analyst Tim Tebow’s chance to suffer a strange injury.
According to reporter Mike Puma, Tebow stepped on a sprinkler head in the New York Mets’ spring training complex outfield and sprained his ankle:

It’s not clear at this point how long Tebow will be out with the injury, but sprained ankles can take a while to heal properly.
This is certainly a disappointing setback for Tebow, who was hoping to build on a decent 2017 season this spring. For now, though, he’ll be sidelined, with a healthy new respect for outfield sprinklers.
