The wife of Montreal Alouettes general manager Jim Popp is recovering after being bit by a shark.

Popp posted pictures of his wife, Kim, with a stitched-up foot and punctured ankle after she was attacked by a shark during a vacation at Hilton Head Island, S.C.

"My Super Hero wife Kim, mother of 6, sweet as honey, tougher than steel. Bit by shark in HHI. Odds: 1 in 11.5 million," Popp posted on an unverified Twitter account with the handle @BigDaddyMville.
