(VIDEO) Ouch!! South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore suffers horrifying leg injury
(WARNING: This injury is gruesome!)
On Saturday”s college game of the South Carolina vs. Tennessee Lattimore was tackled and footage shows his leg collapsed on impact. Watch….
According to Yahoo! Sports, the serious nature of the injury was not known at the time. “It looked severe on the field,” South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said during his halftime interview with ESPN. “Hopefully it’s not as severe as we thought.”
Poor Marcus! He tore his ACL last year and worked hard to rehab and get back to play. An emotional Lattimore was carted off the field, met by his mother who embraced him while they both cried. This shows the real possibility of serious injury at the collegiate level which exemplifies the need for those going into college sports to get athletic insurance coverage quotes at SquarePeg in order to prepare for events like this.
I hope the injury is not that serious and that he can heal properly. If he can’t, he would need to take serious consideration about a life OUTSIDE the NFL and consider a ‘Plan B”.
