Here is a caller to— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) suggesting that Ryan Fitzpatrick injured his hip on a waterslide earlier in the week.
So basically this guy just happened to be at the same water park as Fitzpatrick last week and thinks he saw him hobbling around after going down the "fast" water slide. The radio station's fact-checkers confirmed that Symington's is a water park that exists in Leesburg, Virginia. Here's a picture.

Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick could be out multiple weeks with hip injury
Fitzpatrick sustained the injury in the second quarter on Sunday and had to exit the game. The 38-year-old was questionable to return before being ruled out for the remainder of the game.In addition to starting off the season with a loss, Washington could also be without starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick for multiple weeks following an injury he sustained during Sunday's 20-16 defeat at the hands of the L.A.

Would you really be all that surprised if Ian Rapoport tweeted out tomorrow that Fitzpatrick, of all people, hurt himself by refusing to go down the slow water slide? I would not.
