Ex-Eagle injures himself playing football on 'The Bachelorette'

Poor Clay Harbor.

The former tight end for the Eagles came across as a nice guy on this season of ABC's "The Bachelorette" but it never really seemed like he had any real chemistry with the leading lady, Becca K.

He did at least get his moment to shine on the show last night when the cast played a game of football. Here's how People described it:

The real star of the date, of course, is Clay. Poor Clay, who has played professionally in the NFL for 10 years, ends up hurting himself badly. He gets the group date rose at the end of the day, but by the time the cocktail party rolls around the following evening, he finds out he needs surgery and is forced to excuse himself from the competition or risk sacrificing his job, which allows him to support his family.

You can watch the injury below, via TBL, which happened during a stiff arm.

Harbor took to Twitter after the show aired and said he enjoyed the experience and that he's still looking for love and work.

Two former Eagles to compete on the Bachelorette

On the last season of The Bachelor, Becca Kufrin, aka Becca K., won the show by ending up with former racecar driver Arie Luyendyk, aka Arie, only to have him call off the engagement and wedding on national TV and propose to the show’s runner-up, Lauren Burnham, aka Lauren B.

Let’s hope these former athletes treat her a little better.

Today on their Facebook page, The Bachelor revealed the men that would be vying for the heart of the once-scorn show contestant and two of them stood out, former Eagles TEs Clay Harbor and Colton Underwood.

Harbor probably doesn’t require as much googling as Underwood because he was drafted by the Eagles in 2010 in the fourth round and pulled in 114 catches and nearly 1,200 yards with eight scores in his career for four teams. He won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2016.

Underwood was literally on the Eagles’ practice squad for six days in 2014 and was on the practice squad for two other teams without appearing in an NFL game.

If you already watch the show, a few former NFL players could be an interesting wrinkle to the house dynamic, but if you’re not a fan, I’m not sure these names, even as Eagles fans, will pull you in.

The show kicks off on May 28 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
