DK Metcalf carted off field in Week 4 ... in order to relieve himself

When you gotta go, you gotta go.

UPDATE: In case you needed confirmation that DK Metcalf had to poop.

Seattle Seahawks fans got a brief scare in the fourth quarter of Week 4 when wide receiver DK Metcalf was shown on the FOX broadcast being taken from the field on a cart. He didn’t look like one normally does with their leg up and showing visible signs of anguish over an injury. And it turns out there was a reason for that....

The man had to relieve himself!

We’ve heard stories of players peeing on the sideline, with teammates surrounding them so they can quickly go to the bathroom. I’m going to assume DK had to poop because he really wouldn’t be able to as easily handle that business on the sideline. Or, maybe DK is a bit shy and didn’t even want to pee in front of anybody on the sideline. Regardless, we hope he feels relieved as the Seahawks attempt to hold off the Lions.
