Carl Edwards is in a good mood this weekend. After suffering a broken foot from taking part in one of the most physically dangerous sports known—frisbe—a few weeks ago, Edwards was able to leave home without crutches for the first time since.

Edwards will be confined to a heel the next few weeks, so the return of a post-win back-flip is still a little ways off.

“It feels great to be off my crutches. I’m not in the clear yet. As long as I don’t mess this thing up, I’m good. I’m allowed to walk on my heel. So, that’s good.”

What will Edwards be doing with them after his foot is healed? Simple, “Break them over (his) knee."

With the luck he has had as far as bizarre incidents, maybe he better put that off.
