Bryce Harper riding an exercise bike

We wanted to post the image that Bryce Harper tweeted on Thursday of his exercise bike regimen, because it offers a look at the scar on his knee after a recent surgery to debride and repair his bursa sac. (See below.) This is something we’ve typically done with D.C. athletes recovering from knee surgeries.

But then the photo disappeared.

And then, later today, a different photo appeared. The one seen above.

Which was peculiar, because personally, the photos look virtually identical. I can’t really spot a single difference between them.

Weird. Oh well.
