Now that many elite NFL players have broken down the stigma of "adult protective undergarments" with their Depend endorsements (we recently spoke to Wes Welker, Clay Matthews and DeMarcus Ware on this very subject), a new NFL topic has been making the rounds: How do players deal with it when they're in the middle of a game, and nature calls at a DEFCON level? Per Yahoo!'s own Jeff Passan, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim's Jered Weaver dealt with this issue as he was twirling his no-hitter Wednesday night, but it's a bit easier when you have the breakup of innings to deal with what must be dealt with.
Speaking with ESPN's Dan LeBatard on Wednesday, Welker confirmed a story told to LeBatard by Zach Thomas of the Miami Dolphins. The All-Pro receiver revealed that former New England Patriots teammate Larry Izzo once dealt with a No. 2 issue in his own no-nonsense fashion -- and earned a game ball for his trouble because he did so without anybody noticing.
