Reporter Dustin Long breaks ankle while interviewing Dale Earnhardt Jr.
And this was no minor injury. Long’s Twitter page indicates that he kept doing his job after suffering the break, but we have no idea how he was even getting around. He later saw the doctor for an X-ray and shared a photo of his ankle, which was swollen to about the size of a grapefruit.

Long was still able to take down all of Dale Jr.’s comments and write his story. He also grabbed his crutches and got back to work on Sunday at the Pocono 400.
