Jamie Foxx injures leg playing basketball at Sporting Club

Jamie Foxx injured his leg playing basketball at the Sporting Club at the Bellevue Tuesday night. Foxx was playing ball with a group of guys when he got hurt and limped off the court. Eyewitnesses say Foxx, in town shooting “Law Abiding Citizen,” was good natured about it and didn’t complain about the injury. The Sporting Club asked Foxx if he wanted to be seen by a medic, but the actor declined and was treated by his own trainer. Meanwhile, fellow ballers teased that director F. Gary Gray, who’s also a regular on the Sporting Club’s basketball court, might have to work the injury into the picture. The film’s shoot this morning at Holmesburg Prison was cut short because Foxx was in pain. He was seen at one point hobbling on crutches. A call to the film’s publicist was not immediately returned this afternoon. Around the same time as Foxx was injured his co-star Gerard Butler was getting his work out on around the corner at Bally’s (15th & Walnut) where he ran a treadmill, and lifted weights, as was first reported on The Buzz.
