Bizarre injuries: Part II

No that's the wrong ball!!!

Alright here you go:

RICHARD WRIGHT - The Everton goalkeeper faced most of the summer on the sidelines after damaging his shoulder falling through a loft as he was trying to pack away his suitcases.

SEAN FLYNN - The then Kidderminster captain suffered a broken nose, busted lip and bruised toes after tripping over his son's toy cars.

KASEY KELLER - The American international knocked out his front teeth while pulling his golf clubs out of the boot of his car.

ALAN WRIGHT - The diminutive former Aston Villa full-back strained his knee by stretching to reach the accelerator in his new Ferrari. He subsequently swapped the sports car for a Rover 416.

DAVID JAMES - The England goalkeeper once pulled a muscle in his back when reaching for the television remote control and the keen angler also tweaked his shoulder when trying to land a monster carp.

STEVE MORROW - The former Northern Ireland defender broke his collarbone after falling off the shoulders of Tony Adams while celebrating the 1993 League Cup final win against Sheffield Wednesday.

CHIC BRODIE - The Brentford goalkeeper's career came to an abrupt end in October 1970 when he collided with a sheepdog which had run onto the pitch. Brodie shattered his kneecap while the dog got the ball. "The dog might have been a small one, but it just happened to be a solid one," he reflected. Poor fella...

SVEIN GRONDALEN - The Norway defender had to withdraw from an international during the 1970s after colliding with a moose while out jogging.

ALAN MULLERY - The England star missed the 1964 tour of South America after injuring his back while brushing his teeth. Hope you now understand the risk we put ourselves through everyday.

LEE HODGES - The then Barnet player slipped on a bar of soap in the shower and wrenched his groin. Ow.
