Even the toughest of us can get injured, but there is nothing worse than getting injured during a warm-up.

The Game Plan Delayed for Rock Injury

During my Junior year in high school I tore a tendon in my foot during a warmup practice on wet grass only a day before my soccer team's winter tournament. The tear turned out to be a pretty big deal and nearly pulled me out of the sport for the entire year. All for a stupid warm-up practice!

Well, it seems Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is in the same boat. While rehearsing for his role in The Game Plan, Johnson ruptured his Achilles tendon.

According to Variety, Disney will now have to push the start of production for the film back in order to compensate for Johnson's mending process.

Johnson will undergo surgery Friday in Miami, and the film is postponed until he heals. He's no stranger to the football field, having played on a Miami Hurricanes team that won the National Championship, and done a brief stint in the Canadian Football League before he turned to pro wrestling.

"My injury, while serious, is unfortunately common with this type of activity. I am so appreciative of the outpouring of support that I have received from Disney and all those involved with this film," Johnson said in a statement.

Stay tuned for updates.
