Tigres winger Jurgen Damm has turned himself into an example of how not to play with fireworks after suffering first-degree burns on the right side of his face in a New Year's Eve fireworks accident. Damm will be out for around two weeks, the club announced.

We assume he was leaning over a firework and it went off, but the story hasn't come out yet. Damm will miss the start of Tigres' title defense. In an already-crowded Tigres attack, this injury could mean Damm is the odd man out even when he returns.
At least he didn't blow parts of his hand off like Jason Pierre-Paul. Next New Year's Eve, we predict Damm will watch fireworks from a safe distance and let others put their faces where they shouldn't be putting their faces.
