Here I was thinking the Eric Wood broken leg video was awful, but after seeing what happened to Derrick Roland I might have to reconsider things. Texas A&M was taking on Washington in Seattle when early on in the 2nd half when guard Derrick Roland went up for a bucket. It appears as if his legs got entangled with a Washington player’s and Roland came down awkwardly. The result was one of the most disgusting images I’ve seen. You can even hear the “crack” sound from when Roland’s leg snapped in this horrific vid. Check outs the Derrick Roland injury video if you think you can endure it, keep in mind that you really only live through it via the reaction of Aggies teammate Donald Sloan.
The reality is that Roland’s collegiate career could be over, but the good news is that the surgery reportedly went well. You can only wish the best for Roland after seeing something so horrific happen to him like that and seeing the way it impacted his teammates. It’s also nice to note that the team is attempting to support Roland as much as possible, staying with him in the hospital until his family arrives. Here’s hoping for the best for Derrick.
