Scott Weiland

Marsha Brady'd at

Notre Dame

9/11/2009 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former Stone Temple Pilots front man Scott Weiland could never make it in the NFL -- and the proof is in the massive gashes on his face.

Scott Weiland

After the 41-year-old singer showed up to an event in West Hollywood Wednesday night sans a chunk of his cheek -- everyone was looking for some kind of explanation ... and finally, we got it.

TMZ spoke with Weiland's rep, who blamed Scott's facial damage on his inability to catch a football.

The rep says Scott -- who's a huge Notre Dame fan -- was tailgating at the game last weekend and throwing the pigskin around with a couple of buddies ... when he accidentally caught one with his face.

Judging by the damage -- whoever threw that ball has a friggin' rocket for an arm.

I can confirm that Scott Weiland was at Notre Dame last weekend. He was staying at my hotel. His dad is an ND alum and former football player.

Lie, maybe he fell trying to catch one. Although I always figured he took balls to the face.

no way a football made that injury. if it's already a few days old, then the small cuts would have been larger, deeper and continuous. Meaning they were caused by something sharp enough to cut skin without bruising it. The entire area is abraded, or rubbed off, not bruised. I don't know what kind of football musicians throw, but i've never seen one that can do that.

Scotty must weigh about 90 pounds dripping wet! If the dudette eat more burgers and fries, the football would not have taken off half of his skinny ass face.

Dude played QB in high school but MAYBE they should have done the sideline routine where the QB throws to a WR and he gently hands the ball to the QB for the return throw.

I agree with hobz....No football (unless it was spiked-get it?) would make those cuts and the abrasion looks like road rash.
