Something you've no doubt heard in countless urban legends happened to an NFL player for real this week: discovering something truly gruesome in his fast food.

And it's not only spoiling some appetites, but also creating potential embarrassment for a Minnesota chicken wing chain.

On Friday, Green Bay Packers tight end Jared Cook tweeted this picture of his visit to Buffalo Wild Wings:

As you can see, it appears to be the deep-fried head of a chicken, something that's definitely not on the menu at B-Dubs.

In the Twitter talkback that ensued, Cook went on to say that the surprise came with "tongue, eyes, and beak all present," not to mention "extra seasoning."

According to another tweet, when he complained to management about it, the response was: "Sorry unfortunately this happens because the chicken is fresh."

For its part, the Minneapolis-headquartered chicken wing chain tweeted back to the grossed-out athlete, assuring him they're investigating the weird find:

The company also gave a statement to the Huffington Post, saying, “Buffalo Wild Wings takes food preparation, service and quality extremely seriously and we are looking into this situation. We’ve reached out to Jared Cook and our suppliers for more information.”
