Stephen Garcia Injures Himself In A Unique Way

Former South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia signed with the Montreal Alouettes on Wednesday, and then got himself put on the injured list in a rather weird way.

While stepping off the Alouettes’ team bus, Garcia flashed the peace sign, and somehow manged to injure his two fingers, forcing the team to put him on the one-game injured list.

Garcia was once a promising NFL prospect but was suspended five times while at South Carolina, and was finally dismissed from the squad last October.

The Alouettes are looking to groom a quarterback behind 39-year-old starter Anthony Calvillo, who is the all-time leader in passing yards in all of professional football with 73,412.

Also, the Montreal back-up, Adrian McPherson, is a free agent at year’s end, so the team decided to sign Garcia, who threw for 7,597 yards and 47 touchdowns at South Carolina.

The Alouettes just need to put a clause in Garcia’s contract that forbids him from learning sign language. No telling what type of damage he’d do to himself.
