Carrie Underwood blames a jogging accident as the reason she was limping on Tuesday’s American Idol.

Talk about bad luck.

Carrie has more willpower than half of us when it comes to saying no to biggie fries and yes to shaping those calf muscles, yet she recently did a faceplant while running in Nashville.

A woman Carrie had never met was nice enough to pull over and give her a ride home. What a story that lady has for co-workers gathering around the water cooler. Hope she got a pic to back it up, though how awkward would that be? ‘Sorry you’re in pain, but say cheese!’

The ACM Entertainer of the Year says she donned jeans and boots for this week’s Idol performance to cover up her injuries.

Careful, Carrie.
