If you are squeamish, I hope you had the wherewithal to not watch the video above after reading the headline. During UPenn’s 30-21 win over Harvard last weekend, UPenn quarterback Billy Ragone suffered one of the most gruesome ankle injuries you will ever see.
As the reaction of Harvard defensive tackle James Klein (No. 80) so effectively showed, ankles are not supposed to bend that way. After the game, Ragone said winning at least a share of the Ivy League title is the “best feeling in the world” and that he’s going to talk to the surgeon about what to do with the fractured ankle. My guess is “best feeling in the world” won’t be the phrase coming from the doctor’s mouth.
In terms of horrific injuries, Ragone’s broken ankle certainly ranks up there with some of the brutal ones we have seen during games.
