    The Detroit Lions officially are the kings of the bizarre injuries.

    Last year, Nate Burleson broke his arm trying to prevent pizzas from sliding off his car seat. In Week 3, Stephen Tulloch suffered a season-ending torn ACL while celebrating a teammate's play. Heck, Matthew Stafford almost was hit by a falling bridge on Monday.

    But Lions tight end Joseph Fauria has entered the team's Injury Hall of Fame for his mishap.

    That's the Lions' official Twitter account. Not that of The Onion.
