Bizarre Physical Problem: Proprioception

[Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Chris] Simms is suffering from symptoms of irregular proprioception, a kinesthetic sixth sense that allows you to know the position of your arms and legs in relation to your body.

The lack of body awareness makes it particularly difficult when Simms has to turn his torso or throw on the run.

"I'd rather just not comment about the situation right now, honestly,'' Simms said without elaborating on his condition.
