Firecrackers: the silent killer! That’s right – Jason Pierre-Paul apparently wasn’t the only NFL player who was injured in a fireworks accident on the Fourth of July. It also happened to a player that most fans don’t know nor care about!
The Tampa Tribune confirmed that Buccaneers cornerback C.J. Wilson also suffered a hand injury as a result of messing around with fireworks. Guess we can look forward to all NFL contracts banning fireworks in the near future.
A report from the Lincoln Times-News, in Wilson’s North Carolina hometown, states that Wilson lost two fingers in the incident. According to the report, Wilson “was at home in Lincolnton with family and close friends when the accident occurred.”
