Post Titans mascot runs cart into Saints QB

Titans mascot runs cart into Saints QB

Sat Aug 12, 10:48 PM ET

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - New Orleans quarterback Adrian McPherson went to the locker room early in the third quarter after a golf cart ridden by the Titans' mascot hit him at the end of halftime Saturday night.

A Saints spokesman wasn't immediately available for an update on the quarterback, who's heading into his second season.

The mascot was riding on a golf cart and throwing items into the stands during halftime, and was heading off the field when the Saints were returning from their locker room for the third quarter.

The cart hit McPherson, who stayed on the field for a few minutes being checked out by a trainer on the sideline. He then walked off the field.

Saints quarterback out indefinitely after mascot smashup
By CHRIS TALBOTT, Associated Press Writer
August 14, 2006

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Shortly after the New Orleans Saints gathered for Monday morning's practice, reserve quarterback Adrian McPherson limped over to an exercise bike, climbed aboard and started pedaling toward another comeback.
McPherson was run over by Titans mascot T-Rac during second-half warmups of the New Orleans-Tennessee game Saturday night. He said he never saw the golf cart coming as he prepared to catch a punt.

The second-year player had one MRI and is planning a second one to confirm the painful injury is no worse than a severe bruise of his right knee.
McPherson is perhaps best known as the quarterback kicked off the Florida State football team for gambling. He served a stint in the Arena Football League before the Saints took a chance on him in the 2005 draft.
He said Monday he's worked hard to make it to the NFL and the accident was a setback. He has been returning kickoffs and punts to add value to his bid to make the team as the third quarterback.
"I'm just a little disappointed because I worked so hard this season," McPherson said. "I know it was an accident, but something like that should never happen."
Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher and Saints coach Sean Payton discussed the accident Monday afternoon. But Fisher said he wanted to keep the conversation private and Payton was not available for comment after his morning news conference. GMs Mickey Loomis of the Saints and Floyd Reese of the Titans also have discussed the accident.
T-Rac uses a variety of motorized vehicles in his routines. The mascot was leaving the field after Saturday's halftime show when he hit McPherson.
Payton said encroachment on the field was a problem before the game, as well. A photographer stepped into the way of receivers running routes, something that also could have led to injury.
"Those are the things that concern you sometimes when it comes to the field of play," Payton said. "The field of play is the field of play, even when you're warming up. You've just got to make sure you keep those areas safe."

I must confess, that's a cool cart if that was the one...

You should've gone with the title off the article from ESPN.

Saints QB vs. Mascot: Mascot wins.
