Ike Taylor suffers nasty arm injury (Video)

Ike-Taylor-arm-injury

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor could miss the remainder of the 2014 season after he suffered a gruesome arm injury during Sunday night’s win over the Carolina Panthers. Taylor was tackling Kelvin Benjamin in the third quarter when his own teammate, Lawrence Timmons, snapped the veteran cornerback’s forearm with the crown of his helmet.

Timmons was sprinting over to put a big hit on Benjamin but missed his target, hitting Taylor instead. Players from both sides could immediately tell the injury was bad. You can watch the play below, but we don’t recommend it if you’re squeamish.

That was right up there with some of the nastier injuries we have seen over the years. There is a legitimate chance that Taylor, who turned 34 in May, has played his last NFL snap.

Jordan Subban knocked out his front tooth on a hotel door

Jordan-Subban-tooth

Vancouver Canucks defenseman Jordan Subban, the younger brother of Montreal Canadiens star PK Subban, had one of his front teeth knocked out on Monday night. Typical hockey injury, right? Not quite.

Subban did not take a puck or a punch to the face. The 19-year-old lost a fight with his hotel room door. He described what happened in detail through the Canucks official website, even tossing in a great “Dumb & Dumber” reference.

After we got back to the hotel last night, I was in my room just hanging out when I heard some of the boys in the hallway. I poked my head out the door to see where they were headed, they said to eat and I had already had a bite, so I turned to go back into my room.

BAM.

I don’t know what the heck happened, but next thing I knew half my front tooth was on the floor and there was a hole in the door. So now I look like Lloyd Christmas from Dumb & Dumber. Great.

Hockey players lose teeth all the time. Sometimes they even end up having to pull out their own teeth. But knocking out your own tooth by walking into a door is a bit more rare. Thankfully, Subban’s new look is nothing out of the ordinary for his line of work.

Giancarlo Stanton shares his face injury picture

Giancarlo-Stanton-face-injuries

Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton is still recovering after he was hit in the face by a pitch during a game against the Milwaukee Brewers last week. Stanton suffered multiple facial fractures and dental damage after taking a fastball to the cheek. We knew the injuries were nasty from the way they were described, but the 24-year-old slugger provided us with visual evidence on Tuesday.

Tyler Eifert suffers nasty elbow injury

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert left in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens after suffering an apparent elbow injury. He was hit hard after catching a pass and remained down, clearly in tremendous pain.

At first glance, it looks like Eifert probably dislocated the elbow. The photo below is pretty nasty, so we recommend looking away if you’re squeamish.

The Bengals announced that Eifert was doubtful to return after he left the game. Hopefully he’s able to recover quickly, but that certainly didn’t look good.

If nasty injuries are your thing, you can see more of them here.

Guy had massive welt after being hit in head with golf ball

Golf-ball-welt-forehead

Every golfer’s worst nightmare came true for a Swedish man named Joakim Boden recently. No, we’re not talking about missing a two-foot putt when you’re playing your buddy for $20 bucks a hole. Boden was drilled directly in the head with a golf ball.

Despite the monstrous welt the ball left on his forehead, Boden somehow lived to tell the tale. He told golf.se that he was playing a casual round with some friends when something that “sounded like a gunshot” turned out to be a ball striking him in the dome. Look away if you’re squeamish:

Fortunately, Boden was examined at a nearby healthy clinic and did not have any serious injuries. While it is incredibly rare to be hit with a ball, let alone in the head, Boden’s experience is a reminder that you should always cover your head if you hear someone yell “fore!”

Paul George suffers broken leg (Video)

Paul George suffered a broken leg during the USA Basketball scrimmage in Las Vegas on Friday, and there’s no way around it — it was ugly.

George went up to try blocking a fastbreak layup attempt by James Harden in the fourth quarter and his leg landed awkwardly against the backstop.

George’s leg bent like a cartoon and snapped. He was treated immediately and a stretcher was brought out for him.

The video is so ugly we have placed it below.

LSU DT Trey Lealaimatafao suffers serious injury after punching glass window

Trey-LealaimatafaoLSU freshman defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao reportedly suffered a serious arm injury on Monday after he put his fist through a glass window in the team’s weight room. According to Ross Dellenger of the Baton Rouge Advocate, Lealaimatafao was rushed to the hospital after he tore muscles “down to the bone.”

Lealaimatafao allegedly punched through the window after he got into an argument with another LSU football player. Sources told Dellenger he had a “big cut” on his arm that required stitches. The injury was so bad that another person in the weight room reportedly passed out.

Lealaimatafao is likely going to need surgery and could wind up missing his freshman season. The incoming freshman was ranked one of the top 40 defensive lineman in the high school class of 2014.

The gash on Lealaimatafao’s arm was so bad that a source felt the need to tell Dellenger the injury is not career or life threatening. If this was just a minor cut that required a few stitches, I’m guessing no one would be wondering if the arm injury was going to be career-ending.

Lealaimatafao tweeted a photo from the hospital on Tuesday morning and said he is doing well.

Haven’t we learned anything from Amar’e Stoudemire and the brutal hand injury he suffered a couple years ago by punching something? If you’re that angry, just scream. Putting your hand through glass never ends well.
