Derrick Rose Injured In His Bed

Derrick Rose Injured In Bed With KnifeTotal Pro Sports – The title of this post says it all, “Derrick Rose Injured In His Bed“.

Believe it or not, Derrick Rose injured himself while eating an apple in bed.  He rolled over only to forgot that the knife he was using to cut the apple was there.  The knife gashed his arm, Rose needed 10 stitches to close the wound.  Visible on Monday to the media was his large gauze bandage on his left arm, and yes he missed the teams practice.

“It was a silly incident,” Rose said. “I was cutting up some food and I laid on a knife getting lazy in bed. I went to go get a bottle of water, came back, forgot the knife was there, then sat down and sliced my arm.”

After the injury occurred, Derrick Rose immediately called the Chicago Bulls athletic trainer Fred Tedeschi, who drove Rose out to Highland Park Hospital where doctors took care of the wound.  The stitches will be in Roses arm for approximately 10-14 days.

“It’s just an unfortunate thing, but he’ll be fine,” coach Vinny Del Negro said.

I remeber being taught by my mom when I was a child, that I should never eat in bed.  I guess we all know why she enforced this rule? because not only will it make a mess of your bed, but you potentially could get seriously injured.  A lesson all learned.
