The now Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder is said to have suffered a ‘nasty gash’ to his face after tripping over a bike rack in the Canadian City, forcing him to miss his team’s match against Houston Dynamo this coming weekend.
As you can imagine, he’s taken quite a bit of stick for the bizarre injury. Here’s how some fans reacted to the news on Twitter…
I remember Nigel Reo-Coker cupping his ear to West Ham fans after scoring v Man United. That didn't end well… #whufc

Nigel Reo-Coker has to get an episode of MLS Storytime Theatre for this "walking accident"/bike rack/concussion/missed game thing, right?
