As you probably know, over the weekend, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgersbroke his collarbone and is done for the season. What you may not know is that Rodgers’ injury ends up being more proof that the Sports Illustrated jinx is for real.
Nothing good happens to athletes who get on the cover of that magazine.
Before the season started, Sports Illustrated put four players on their 2017 NFL Preview issue: David Johnson, J.J. Watt, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady.
So far this season, David Johnson broke his wrist. J.J. Watt broke his leg. Rodgers broke his collarbone. Only Tom Brady is still standing.
So, clearly, the SI jinx is real – and Tom Brady needs to be extra careful out there. (Yahoo Sports)
