Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving suffered an unusual and very painful-sounding injury at training camp Tuesday.

Irving lost his nipple ring during a practice session and is now dealing with a ripped nipple:

“It hurt so bad I just had to let the world know,” Irving said after Wednesday’s practice, according to Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But it didn’t completely tear through. It must have been loose and yanked the side out. Thank God it was loose.”

Irving was then asked why he got the nipple ring in the first place.

“Well damn if we are talking about it. That’s my spot,” he explained. “When you get it pierced it gets more sensitive. The girls love it. That’s why I got it.”
