Bryce Harper's rehab is focused on video games

By Zach Levatino,

In April, Bryce Harper received surgery for a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb. Today, he plans on rehabbing that thumb with PlayStation 4.

Something Harper is very serious about is not rushing back and risking another, more serious injury. He has no timetable and he simply will rehab until he feels 100 percent. The Washington Nationals star will return no sooner.

“He’s still not able to catch balls because of that left thumb, still not able to hit, just kind of going through range-of-motion exercises and he’s going to start using some PlayStation to work that thumb back into gear as he tries to make progress.” MASN’s Dan Kolko reported, notes the Washington Post.

Over the years, video games have been said to be a distraction for today’s youth – kids play video games way too much. Now, everyone will be watching Harper to see how effective his plan of rehab will be.

Since he has no timetable, most people will be picturing Harper laying around all day playing video games, but that is not the case. There are several other things he will have to do to get back on the field as quickly as possible, but he has made it clear that there is no need to rush, according to Yahoo Sports.
