DK Metcalf took to Twitter on Sunday night to clear the air about his flashy exit from Sunday’s 48-45 win over the Lions.
The Seahawks star rode an injury cart to the locker room for an impromptu bathroom break in the fourth quarter, prompting a series of jokes on social media. He eventually returned to the field on a return trip via car.
After the game, Metcalf explained the exact reason he needed to be taken off the bench. Her response from him?
“That clinch walk wouldn’t have made it,” he tweeted.
Metcalf further explained his condition to reporters.
“Yeah, I mean I was in pain,” DK said of the cart ride, via All Seahawks’ Zach Dimmitt. “That was it. My stomach hurt a bit, I had to heal myself.”
While Metcalf’s responses may be too TMI for some fans, the 24-year-old wide receiver’s performance on Sunday proved too much for the Lions’ secondary.
Metcalf had seven catches for 149 yards, all before his departure. Seattle ended up shutting down Detroit in a shootout to improve to 2-2 on the year.
