No matter how many times we see these nasty sports injuries on video, they never get easier to watch. Those of us who are college basketball fans are familiar with the name Edgar Sosa. Sosa was a star at Louisville but went undrafted in 2010. Over the summer he has been playing with John Calipari and the Dominican Republic in the FIBA Americas tournament trying to establish a name for himself. On Monday during a win over Panama, Sosa suffered a horrific leg injury that is being reported as a fracture tibula.
We have seen a number of similar injuries over the years such as this one, this one, and this one, but you have to feel particularly bad for a guy like Sosa who was working hard just to gain recognition. Hopefully the leg heals quickly and he can get back to playing and trying to prove himself.
