Discussion of Rob Gronkowski's ankle has dominated the media during the two weeks of hype building up to the Super Bowl. But another crucial injury has gone mostly unmentioned.
Madonna, who will perform the Super Bowl halftime show at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday, has been banged up due to a pulled hamstring.
She said during a press conference Thursday she has been doing "a lot of warm-ups, taping and ultrasound" to prepare for her performance.
"I feel like I'm one of the football players right now with all of the physical therapy I have to do, but I'm good," Madonna said. "Mind over matter."
Unlike Gronkowski, Madonna will not have to block Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul on Sunday. But belting out "Like A Virgin" can be pretty taxing.
