Here’s the bad news about Chris Cooley: he’s already been declared out for Sunday’s game. He’s moving around with a walking boot and, occasionally, crutches. Even if he can possibly come back this season, it won’t happen for weeks.
Here’s the good news about Chris Cooley: he’s still got his sense of humor. He showed up in the offices at Redskins Park today riding this contraption, which he compared to a Razor scooter.
A bystander observed that it was awesome and asked if he could buy one. “Sure,” Cooley said, “Just go to InjuredGuyScooters.com.”
“Really?” the bystander asked.
“No,” Cooley said, and scootered off.
(The actual website is scootaboutkneescooters.com, which doesn’t go the Razor scooter route, instead describing the device as “an alternative to crutches or walker for individuals who want to remain active and continue working or going to school, even with foot or ankle injuries.”)
I ran into Colt Brennan not too much later. Brennan had surgery that left him on crutches for awhile, but I never saw him with a scooter, a fact that was not lost on the injured quarterback.
“Well, obviously,” he said, “you know, Redskins have their priorities around here: make sure that when Chris Cooley’s hurt, he gets a scooter to roll around on.”
And would you have wanted one?
“Yes,” Brennan said firmly. “Oh yeah.”
