It's not uncommon at all for athletes to get injured on the court or field. But every now and then, they get injured away from the playing field while doing something that they're not supposed to be doing. And in most cases, they try to get away with it by lying about it. But that never works, does it? Apparently not, because Bleacher Report just put together a list of dumb lies athletes have told about injuries over here. Did these athletes really think that these excuses stood a chance?!
