Comedian Kevin Hart finds himself in a wheelchair following an injury sustained during a foot race with former NFL star Stevan Ridley.
Hart, at 44 years of age, recently revealed that he tore his lower abdomen and hip abductors while competing against 10-years-younger Ridley in a 40-yard dash. Even without the injury, Hart had little chance of winning.
In a lighthearted manner, Ridley jokingly pointed fingers at Tom Brady, the retired seven-time Super Bowl champion, for Hart’s misfortune.
Brady, who concluded his 23-season NFL career this February as a 45-year-old, is known for defying expectations. Not many players can continue performing at such a high level at that age, making his retirement a significant milestone in football history.
The timeline for Hart’s recovery and the duration of his wheelchair usage remain uncertain. If he were an NFL player, it’s likely he would be out until December.
Ridley, a former member of the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl championship team in the 2014-15 season, experienced his fair share of injuries, including an ACL tear that prevented him from participating in the postseason.
Throughout his NFL career, Ridley played in a total of 73 games, rushing the ball 743 times for 3,102 yards and scoring 24 touchdowns. He played for various teams, such as the New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos, Minnesota Vikings, and Pittsburgh Steelers, after his time at LSU in college.
