HOAX: Colin Kaepernick Breaks Both Legs in Car Accident

By August 5, 2013

Hot on the heels of last week's "news" that Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning broke both legs in a car accident comes this week's "news" that 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick — are you ready? — broke both legs in a car accident!

The odds are against it, sure enough. Neither report is true. Like the Peyton Manning story, the article claiming Kaepernick was injured is an Internet hoax created via FakeAWish.com, a fake celebrity news generator.

In related news, Jackie Chan isn't dead.
