It wasn’t a huge linebacker that took out Detroit Lions tight end Joe Fauria. It was someone much smaller — and cuter. Fauria admitted Monday he missed the game Sunday because he sprained his ankle after tripping down two stairs in his home while trying to stop his 3-month-old puppy from peeing on the carpet. "I hate to blame it on Lil' Rufio, but it is kind of his fault, and my fault too, for not being athletic enough to catch myself," Fauria said. He shared this photo of the adorable pup on Twitter and asked fans to go easy on the little guy, saying he was working hard to get back on the field. — Read it at Yahoo
