Eat The Press’ Rachel Sklar blogs that John Roberts Thanksgiving bike accident was a bit more serious than he realized…he broke his neck!
Roberts will be in a neck brace for the next 4-6 weeks, though “American Morning” publicist Christine Pietz confirmed that he won’t be wearing the brace on air during that time (don’t worry, the doctor said it was okay). Alas, that means we won’t be able to add to our John Roberts Pictoral Collection™ with some saucy neck-brace pin-ups, but we’ll be fine — we’re just glad he’s going to be fine. Here’s to a speedy recovery, John Roberts! And to the rest of you, for God’s sake, don’t forget your damn helmet! Even for walking. Honestly, those crowds around Fifth Avenue during the holidays can be vicious.
