Yea… You read that right. New York Jets RB Joe McKnight failed his physical earlier in the week because he was in too good of a shape. Or not really. His body fat was too low and he was suffering from dehydration.

“I’ve just got to get my body fat up right now,’’ said McKnight.

If he needs some tips on gaining some extra fat, I have a good workout plan for him and a good diet. I currently am on that runner’s diet, without the running. It can definitely help build up the fat for McKnight. I am sure we all have some tips for McKnight.

This is the first time ever that I have heard a player failing their physical for not having enough body fat. That is some kind of crazy. Tell the dude to eat some food. If he is going to work his tail off, then he better fill that body with some grub.

“I’ve just got to get my body fat up to keep me from cramping a lot, just stay hydrated,” he said. “It’s hard drinking a lot all day because in the middle of the night you have to keep getting up to go to the bathroom, but it’s just something I have to stay focused on and just do it.’’

    It actually more serious then you make it sound but if its dehydration an lack of body fat he’s more prone to injury and fatigue
