My first thought was Joe Theismann - it looked that bad. The only other play I remember looking as bad was when either Charlie Garner or James "Little Man" Stewart broke his leg and it was doubled over...
Definitely top 5 most gruesome for me. Feel awful for the kid
Pretty sure you're thinking of Aaron Hayden. We had some great backs in the day.
I remember seeing the play and seeing the leg doubled over - but for the life of me I can't remember specifically who it was. It could have been Hayden though...
McGahee was also nasty. Worst was Monday Night Football and Napoleon McCollum...Raiders and Niners. Ken Norton Jr wouldn't even get up until the guy was moved off him. Grotesque.
Lattimore play definitely reminded me of McGahee. Hopefully he can come back and have a similar pro career to McGahee
Um...McGahee didn't fracture anything, did he? I'll be stunned if Lattimore's isn't a fracture.
Word on the Carolina board is a broken tibula(?) or femur.
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
Don't think so but he blew out every ligament in his knee. I was referring in terms of severity. It took McGahee a couple years to fully recover from that.

FWIW, I think he fumbled... But yea it's sad
follow me on twitter: WESinTN
I would be surprised if he didn't fumble. At that point, holding onto the ball is the last thing on a players mind.
wes!!! ya he did fumble he never touched the ground feel terrible for the guy because his career is prolly over seeings that its the opposite knee of the acl from last year
Looked to me like he dislocated his knee (and tore every ligament in it). Will be interesting to see what the actual injury is.
Just hate it for the kid.
I was at the game. It was horrific. I felt so bad for him and his family. I prayed for him and his mom(who was in tears)right there. It was also a pretty amazing moment when both benches emptied and Tennessee and USC players surrounded Lattimore before he was put on the stretcher and taken to the hospital. The stadium was silent. It took me a while to get back into the game. However, our guys and thiers played through the shock of the moment. It was unforgettable. I could have watched live, Lattimore's last game ever. really looked bad on ESPN. I slow motioned it and as a X-Ray technologist its one of the worst i have ever seen.
God, I hope so.
That's what I thought. I wasn't sure he broke it as much as dislocated it and tore the patella tendon along with ligaments. Looked career ending though
Let's hope not. He could have been a great one. Was a beast when healthy. Keep this kid and his family in our thoughts.
Word is Lattimore tore all 4 ligaments, broke femur, tore the patella and ruptured tendons. Career ending if true. I would think that requires a knee replacement.
WGAF if he fumbled DB
It is horrible. Saw the same thing on twitter. Waiting on official word from SC. Could be the worst non paralyzing injury that I have ever seen
There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
That one replay where the trainer grabed the leg and it looked like he turned it back into place was just painful to watch. Wow if he even walks again it will be a unbelievable. thoughts and prayers.
From the blog Dr. Saturday: (**WARNING: the video above shows a gruesome injury. You may not want to watch if you are squeamish.**) The entire college football world will be praying for Marcus Lattimore. The South Carolina running back, who tore an ACL last year … Continue reading →
Man my knee twinged watching that. Sour feeling in the pit of my stomach too. God help that young man, cuz that was just gruesome.
That sounds like more than just a knee replacement is needed. That's a replacement plus full reconstruction if true.
Thank you for the love for Marcus. He is a class act. I feel like I just lost a child. Can't sleep. Just devestated.
Marcus is a class act. He's the one non-UT player in the SEC I really enjoyed watching play. It was just a freak and unfortunate injury.
