NASHVILLE, Tenn. - New Orleans quarterback Adrian McPherson went to the locker room early in the third quarter after a golf cart ridden by the Titans' mascot hit him at the end of halftime Saturday night.

A Saints spokesman wasn't immediately available for an update on the quarterback, who's heading into his second season.

The mascot was riding on a golf cart and throwing items into the stands during halftime, and was heading off the field when the Saints were returning from their locker room for the third quarter.

The cart hit McPherson, who stayed on the field for a few minutes being checked out by a trainer on the sideline. He then walked off the field.

Okay, this one gets filed under Jeff Kent "washing his truck". But this proves the point... preseason games can be dangerous.

Amazing hopefully he wont be hurt too badly because if he is someone on the Titans will be in trouble. Imagine if this happened to Reggie Bush or something.

How would someone on the Titans "be in trouble"? The dude got hit by a golf cart while he was throwing stuff into the stands. How fast could he have been going? Nothing's going to happen, it's not a big deal, I'm sure he'll be fine.

I m not sure somebody always gets blamed maybe the cart driver next week will be firing the T-Shirts into the crowd with the air gun.

Uhhhh, yeah someone should get blamed. How about the idiot cart driver not watching where he's going.

Is it just me, or whenever you hear about the New Orleans Saints in the news, that you can hear blooper music playing in your head?

It's as if all of the Saints should come pouring out of a '72 polka-dotted VW Beetle, isn't it?

I've worn a mascot costume quite a bit and I'll tell you first hand that vision inside those cartoony heads isn't that great. I can definitely see hitting someone by mistake in close quarters like that. I've accidentally stepped on little kids before when I didn't have a spotter with me.

Generally, I think T-Rac goes back to the locker rooms before he teams come back out on the field. This was probably just a preseason timing mistake.

Well I dont think the gut driving the cart was wearing a mask he was driving T_Rac

... you're right, the mascot was only riding the cart.... it said so right at the first post quoting the article
