There are many reasons why the Pro Bowl is annoying, but "injuries to players" usually isn't one of them. Except for today, as it appears that NFL-leading rusher Arian Foster might have gotten hurt while playing in Hawaii to celebrate his great 2010 season.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that Foster just recently underwent "minor arthroscopic surgery" on his right knee because of an injury he suffered at the Pro Bowl.
McClain notes that "if this were the regular season," then the Texans running back could return to the field in three weeks. He apparently thought rest following his trip to Hawaii would help, but it didn't, and he opted for the surgery.
Obviously this injury is something of concern for the Texans, because they don't want their newly-studded running back to roll into 2011 with a pile of injury concerns lingering over his head. But the good news is that the surgery was minor, Foster is theoretically going to be fine and there are bigger issues surrounding the NFL that need to be solved before we can even see Foster try to run.
The lesson here, as always, though: the Pro Bowl is evil.
