Yowch. Let’s all send a group "get well" to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who went and ruptured his Achilles tendon while practicing some football for his next movie, "The Game Plan." I’ve never ruptured that tendon myself, but I’m told it hurts like crazy.
From The Hollywood Reporter: "An injury sustained by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is forcing Walt Disney Pictures to write a whole new playbook for its family football comedy, "The Game Plan." Johnson suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon injury Monday during a football practice in preparation for his upcoming role as a professional quarterback in the movie, which was previously known as "Daddy’s Girl." Johnson is slated to undergo surgery Friday in Miami. Production has been put on hiatus and the studio said it will continue when he can resume his role in the film, though that will not be determined until after surgery and will have to take into consideration recovery and rehab time."
