Are Legs Supposed to Bend That Way?

December 8, 2009

There’s a very good reason why women, daytime soap opera actors, and writers don’t play professional football. Quite frankly, it’s a little on the violent side. Just ask Minnesota Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson, who suffered one of the most gruesome injuries to ever be color-commentated by Chris Collinsworth.

Watch how his leg appears to bend in seven different directions as he attempts to make a tackle during his team’s primetime showdown with the Arizona Cardinals. It literally hurts to watch:


After being carted off the field with half of his limbs scrambled throughout his equipment,  Henderson has been listed as “questionable” for next week’s game and “may not” return for the playoffs.

On an unrelated note, I injured myself eating some awfully hot soup last night and considered taking the morning off of work to recover.
