Cody Ceci bloodied after taking puck to the head (GIF)

Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber has one of the hardest slapshots in the NHL. Ottawa Senators defenseman Cody Ceci found that out in the worst way possible on Monday night.

Ceci and the Senators were trying to kill off a Nashville power play when Weber fired the puck toward the net. It caught Ceci in the side of the head and deflected off like it had just hit the goal post. He was left with a nasty gash and did not return to the game.


The injury reminded us of the one this Washington Capitals fan suffered just a few months ago while sitting in the stands. Even helmets can’t protect players from everything. Here’s hoping the 20-year-old has a full and speedy recovery.

Dale Weise took a skate to the face and ended up with this nasty cut

Dale Weise face

Montreal Canadiens forward Dale Weise took a skate to the face during Saturday night’s 4-3 overtime win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Being the true, tough hockey player that he is, Weise did not let the bloody cut keep him out of the game long. He received stitches and returned to the game. But he ended up with one nasty, jagged cut by his lip. Teammate George Parros tweeted this picture of how it looked.

Anthony Munoz’s disgusting finger is back to haunt us


Concussions may be some of the most dangerous injuries a football player can sustain, but they are not the only battle wounds that stick with you for life. Former Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman Anthony Munoz reminds us of that every year when the annual Hall of Fame induction ceremonies take place.

We have seen players suffer some terrifying finger injuries while playing, but those are usually fixed by team doctors. Munoz, an 11-time Pro Bowler, last played in the NFL in 1992 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1998. Yet, it still looks like he just got stepped on by a defensive lineman five minutes ago. That can’t be fun.

NaVorro Bowman suffers nasty leg injury (GIF)

NaVorro-Bowman-leg-injurySan Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman suffered a gruesome leg injury on a crucial play during the fourth quarter of the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse caught a pass at around the 2-yard line and fumbled. Bowman clearly recovered the fumble, but someone was able to wrestle it away from him under the pile.

Bowman was likely in a lot of pain, which led to a Seahawks player being able to tear the ball out of his arm. Fortunately for San Francisco, the Seahawks went for it on fourth down and Marshawn Lynch fumbled on the very next play.

Recovery of a loose ball in the field of play is not reviewable. If the play occurred in the end zone, the officials would have been able to look at it again and would have realized Bowman had possession.

Price is Right contestant suffers ankle injury spinning the wheel (Video)

Game shows like “The Price is Right” may be nerve-wracking, but we wouldn’t exactly call them sports. After some of the injuries we have witnessed this week, however, you could certainly argue that there are physical risks involved with joining Drew Carey up on stage.

On Tuesday, a contestant named Judy on “The Price is Right” suffered a nasty-looking ankle injury while she was spinning the wheel. Here’s a still shot of the moment where the injury took place:


That cannot have felt good. Judy received medical attention and was given some crutches, but she stayed on to compete in the Showcase Showdown before being taken to the hospital for treatment. She lost, but she managed to show everyone that she’s a ferocious competitor. We hope she gets well soon.

OSU OL Brandon Garrett suffers bad leg injury, carted off field

Oklahoma State offensive lineman Brandon Garrett was carted off the field after suffering a leg injury against Missouri in the Cotton Bowl on Friday.

Garrett’s injury occurred in similar fashion to most leg injuries for offensive lineman; someone rolled into him from behind. The junior was blocking downfield and appeared to get clipped by either his teammate or a defender making the tackle.

Hopefully Garrett will recover from his injury in time for his senior season.

Here’s a close look at his leg if you can handle it:

Hockey player Sebastian Courcelles shows off horrific scar after taking skate to face


There are very few injuries in sports that are more terrifying than those involving the blade of a hockey skate. In a recent Ligue Nord-Americaine de Hockey (LNAH) game in Quebec, a player named Sebastian Courcelles took a skate to the face that left him with with a gash that is not for the squeamish. Courcelles’ face looked like it was straight out of a horror movie, and one of his teammates nearly passed out when seeing the wound.

Below you will see an uncensored version of the gash. If you have a weak stomach, you’ve been warned. This is really, really bad:
