You know why Mike Vrabel won’t be headbutting Ohio State players before games from now on? This is what happened to his forehead before the Michigan game, according to his wife, Jen, who wants everyone to see the damage.

She tweets:

Here’s the pic to prove it! Best not to headbutt a guy w/a helmet on when you aren’t wearing one!!

The inquisitive reporters from Ohio State site Eleven Warriors (@Derek11W) started asking about the damage.

You read that right, Vrabel didn’t tell his wife how many stitches were in his forehead. Those are just the small things in life that don’t matter when you’re a second-year college coach trying to help win football games.

This was posted on Eleven Warriors the day after the Michigan game.

I was standing outside of the OSU tunnel at the game as the players came in and out for warmups. Vrabel ran by and out to the field with a bloody mess on his shirt. Wasn’t able to see his face, but an odd scene. All my dad and I could deduct is that he got a little fired up before the game and was doing a little head butting. Anyone know anything?  Curious.

It seems the cut is healing nicely. Here is Vrabel last weekend at the Ohio high school state championship games. (via @Schlimmbo22)
