Rumors were flying Monday that Las Vegas Raiders rookie receiver Henry Ruggs had a near-death experience while helping a friend move. Thankfully, those rumors were unfounded.
The rumors started when a Twitter account shared that Ruggs' thigh was punctured and that “his femoral artery was an inch away from being hit.”

Not surprisingly, this induced a bit of panic across Raider Nation. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Ruggs was involved in an accident while helping a friend move. However, he is “OK”, and the wound reportedly is not serious.
