Stevan Ridley, a former running back for the National Football League, posted a video showing the moments before comedian Kevin Hart suffered a muscle injury. Ridley and Hart compete in a 40-yard dash in the middle of a street in a series of videos uploaded to Instagram with the caption, “Gotcha?? Whoa! Got who?
Ridley and Hart were debating who was faster, according to a post on Hart’s Instagram. Ridley participated in NFL games for five organizations for one season, including the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. In the video, Ridley consistently prevails in the competition, while Hart begins to tire after realizing something is amiss.
Hart suffered lower abdominal and hip abductor tears during the race. Last week, Hart shared on Instagram that he tore several muscles due to competing against Ridley. The comedian and actor displayed his current wheelchair in the video.

In his post, Hart said,
“The age 40 is real…it’s not a game. Respect that age. Age will make you respect it,” “I’m in a wheelchair. Why? Because I tried to jump out there and do some young stuff.”
Ridley shared Hart’s post to his Instagram story. Ridley joked,
“I saw @TomBrady do it at your age. So I figured you had the juice too big, bro!” “My bad @kevinhartforeal! Heal up and keep making us all laugh!”
Kevin Hart remained mum on how long his recovery would take. In the video he uploaded to Instagram, however, he flashed the wheelchair. After he posted the video, his friends and other celebrities sent him their best wishes and concerns.
