Bengals punter Kevin Huber changes Twitter avatar to photo of him getting jacked up
Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber fell victim to one of the most brutal hits of the season on Sunday when Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin absolutely leveled him during a punt return. The hit helped spring Antonio Brown free for a 67-yard touchdown, but it was probably illegal and left Huber with a fractured jaw and cracked vertebrae. What Garvin was unable to knock out of Huber was his sense of humor.
On Monday, Huber changed his Twitter avatar to the photo you see above and sent the following tweet about it:
And now by popular demand.. I have found a pic worthy of my new avatar! Enjoy everyone

The play was frightening in real-time and the resulting injuries are even more alarming. NFL rules state that a player cannot hit an unsuspecting, defenseless player like that during a kick return — especially around the neck and head area. Fortunately, Huber seems to be fine and in good spirits about the whole thing.
