Jeff Kent May Have Torn A Knee Ligament Falling On A Raft In The Opening Minutes Of Survivor

Former MLB second baseman Jeff Kent is no stranger to weird, improbable injuries, having famously claimed he broke his wrist while washing his truck. (Turns out he fell off his motorcycle while he was popping wheelies and the Giants were none too happy.) So of course, it's weirdly fitting that Kent would be no more than 10 minutes into tonight's season premiere of Survivor when he inexplicably falls into a raft and twists his knee before sliding face-first into the open water—boots, blue jeans, and all. (A chicken also apparently drowned in the ensuing chaos.) Here's hoping Kent will pull through, because it'd be a shame to see someone so injury-prone get sent home before having a few coconuts fall on this head. Go Kalabaw tribe!
