Football isn’t the only activity that beats up the body. Chicago’s Michael Flatley, who created “Riverdance,’’ is retiring as a dancer because of physical issues.

“My spinal column is in bad shape,” he said. He also mentioned problems with his knees and calf muscles, two ruptured Achilles tendons, a fractured right rib and a foot-bone fracture.

Or, as Bears coach John Fox would call it, a hamstring injury.
