ESPN president John Skipper tore his Achilles tendon while playing volleyball, Sports Business Journal reports

The 59-year-old executive reportedly wrote in a memo that he decided to play volleyball instead of basketball “because it seemed less risky.”

Recovery from a ruptured Achilles tendon typically takes six to eight months, but Skipper promised not to let the injury get in the way of his duties as president, which include deciding which Stephen A. Smith statements warrant suspensions.
