Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick wears his wedding ring during games and practices.
"People take them off," Fitzpatrick told me Wednesday. "They're nervous about getting them caught. I wore it during training camp, and there's no issue. I just made the decision I would never take it off."
Odd as it may seem, Fitzpatrick keeps his ring on when playing a collision sport. It's kind of scary, and kind of neat.
Fitzpatrick doesn't care much about the risks involved with a ring on his exposed left hand. He doesn't cover it with a glove or athletic tape. The shiny platinum is easy to spot if you're looking for it.
This is the first year Fitzpatrick has played with his ring on. He never would try it if he were left-handed. The ball wouldn't feel right in his hand when throwing.
He said he didn't discuss his decision with his wife, Liza, but "She thinks it's cool."
