    This is gruesome

    They're calling it a mid-back injury but from what I see I think it's safe to say it's broken.

    how does someone break their back? The only thing they can break is the vertebrae. With a hit like that most likely the vertebrae can pinch the disk and an put strain on the Dura Matter which contains the spinal cord and nerves. It will definitely hurt for a while.

    I hate seeing players/people get hurt like that.

    Holy ****.

    I haven't had to look away from a hit like this in awhile. I hope its nothing to serious and he can get back on the field okay.

    That was horrifying to see.

    Early reports say he should be fine. Here's hoping they are right.

    When I first saw it on Sunday and it kind of pissed me off some of the comments on the article. The one I remembered specifically was "EVEN THOUGH IM A GB FAN I still hope he's okay." EVEN THOUGH YOURE A FAN OF A RIVAL TEAM!?!? THAT SHOULDN'T ******* MATTER BECAUSE A MAN WAS SERIOUSLY INJURED! I get what they were saying and it wasn't malicious but you should hope he gets better regardless of teams instead of implying that maybe you wouldn't because he was from a rival team.

    I don't see how they can say it isn't a career threatening injury, that will play on that boys mind for a very long time.
