This week鈥檚 episode of The Bachelorette sent not one but two of the guys to the hospital for pretty serious injuries. David Ravitz fell from the top bunk while he was sleeping and ended up in intensive care, and then Clay Harbor had to be carted off in an ambulance after hurting his wrist during a football date with Becca and nine of the other men. Harbor is a free agent in the NFL, so he鈥檚 no rookie on the field, but apparently the competition on The Bachelorette is brutal.

鈥淕ot hurt playing football on The Bachelorette. That鈥檚 pretty funny,鈥 he quipped when it first happened.

It was less funny the next day, when he learned he would need surgery for the injury. Harbor supports his family through football, so even though he already had a rose from Becca Kufrin, he decided to leave the competition to focus on his health.

鈥淚 want to thank everyone for the love and support,鈥 Harbor tweeted after the episode aired. 鈥淒efinitely the hardest decision I鈥檝e ever made but I believe everything happens for a reason. I am working hard to get back on the field and turn this negative into a positive.鈥

In subsequent tweets, he thanked the 鈥渨hole Bachelorette family鈥 for an 鈥渁mazing鈥 experience, writing, 鈥淚 don鈥檛 regret my decision to come on and would gladly give my wrist for a chance at love.鈥 He also explained that after the date was filmed 鈥渕onths鈥 ago, he underwent surgery and a 鈥渢ough rehab鈥 and is 鈥渇inally ready to play some football.鈥 He鈥檚 hoping to get onto a new NFL team for the upcoming season.

In the meantime, he鈥檚 still following Kufrin鈥檚 search for love on TV. And since he鈥檚 out of the running, he shared his views on who he thinks Becca鈥檚 final three bachelors will be. 鈥淪o if the guys were like NFL franchises,鈥 he told Good Morning Football hosts Kay Adams, Nate Burleson, and Peter Schrager, 鈥渢he Patriots are always the favorites. So I鈥檒l go with Colton is the Patriots.鈥

鈥淚鈥檇 say the horse guy, Blake, he鈥檚 the Eagles,鈥 Harbor added before throwing a curve ball into the top three. 鈥淏ut then, you鈥檝e got an up-and-coming Jaguars team, who鈥檚 Garrett. Garrett might surprise some folks.鈥

We鈥檒l have to wait to see what the future holds for the remaining men!

Who do you think will be in Becca鈥檚 top three? Let us know @BritandCo!
