(WSCR) Cowboys full back Lawrence Vickers left practice early Wednesday due to ants in his pants.

No, seriously. He did.

According to a report, Vickers hurried off the field during Cowboys practice on Wednesday with what media members thought was a groin injury.

In reality, Vickers had Texas fire ants in his pants.

“I was doing the play,” Vickers said. “I was running, and I was blocking someone. Then I walk off, and I’m like ‘oh snap.’ And I pulled my pants down to see, and I saw ants. As soon as I got bit, I was like ‘no,’ because I didn’t want to freak out. I wanted to pull my pants down and run inside, but I couldn’t do that.”

Vickers showered and took some Benadryl before returning to practice.
