David Wright has a tear of his rectus abdominis

Quit chuckling. It’s not that. It’s this:


Not that I’m judging. I thought that too when I heard it. And I thought “wait, I thought he said his rib cage hurt.”

Anyway, Wright tells Adam Rubin that the injury — a tear to that muscle — is not as serious as it sounds. It’s merely a strain. So no, it will not wreck him.

Or dern near kill ’em.

    On my Android the title on the preview just reads “David wrigt has tear in his rectus…” hard not to both chuckle and be very concerned

    “Rectus? Damn near *killed* us!”

    (Somebody had to say it, right?)

      Yeah, Craig did.

        D’oh! My bad, I missed that last line. *goes off and thumbs-down self*

    No way, this is an oblique strain. Now they’re changing the cliche? WTF? Sure, the rectus abdominus is not the obliques but it’s right next to ’em! Close enough!

    This is why I play it safe and have no abdominal muscles whatsoever. If only I could explain to my wife that I’m just trying to avoid hurting my rectus…

    Why does the muscle picture where the man has no skin still include nipples?

      It’s a Batman thing. leave it to Craig to sneak Batman into a post about rectums.
