One of my favorite ways to learn about sports injuries is to watch them on TV (or youtube). I have seen a lot of common injuries in person as an athletic trainer, soccer and softball player. It’s an unfortunate thing to suffer from a sports injury. Sadly, my collegiate softball career came to an end when I dove for a ball and broke my radius (Colles fracture). While you may not ‘enjoy’ watching an injury occur, there’s no better way to understand a mechanism of injury better than to see it happen.
I will warn you…this is a heart breaking injury! It is likely that this athlete will never play football again. He fractured his femur and tore his ACL, PCL, MCL, and LCL ligaments. That’s all 4 knee ligaments…a pretty rare injury.
