Tim Tebow suffered a freak accident roaming the outfield.

The New York Mets outfielder and former Heisman Trophy winner tripped on a sprinkler head in the outfield and sprained his ankle, an injury he said happened early last week.

ā€œIā€™m trying to be smart about it and keep (the ankle) taped,ā€ Tebow told reporters after workouts Sunday.

In his first full season in the minors last season, Tebow, 30, hit .226 with eight home runs and 126 strikeout in 126 games between Hi-A and Low-A.
