UAB lineman John Hix suffers nasty leg injury

UAB junior offensive lineman John Hix was carted off the field late in the fourth quarter against Rice after suffering a leg injury. Hix appeared to get tangled up with one of the Rice players and had his right leg bent the wrong direction.

The leg injury was so bad that FOX Sports 1 reportedly declined to show a replay.

You can see how his leg looked below, though we caution that it is nasty:

Jabari Greer suffers nasty leg injury (GIF)

New Orleans Saints cornerback Jabari Greer suffered a leg injury during the first half against the San Francisco 49ers that appeared to be serious. Greer’s leg was put in a brace and he was carted off after he landed awkwardly while breaking up a pass.

We don’t want to speculate as to what the exact injury was, but we can confidently say legs are not supposed to bend the way Greer’s did when he landed.


The 31-year-old veteran has played well this year for a Saints defense that has turned things around under defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. If Greer has to miss an extended period of time, it would be a fairly significant blow.

Steven Stamkos suffers nasty-looking leg injury, gets stretchered off ice (GIF)

Steven-Stamkos-leg-injuryTampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos suffered a leg injury during the second period of a game against the Boston Bruins on Monday that looked like it could be serious. Stamkos collided with Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton in front of his own net and went sliding into the goal. His right leg slammed against the post and his shin appeared to bend a way it is not supposed to bend.

Actually, shins aren’t supposed to bend at all. That’s why the injury looked so brutal. Stamkos tried to get up and skate after suffering the injury but couldn’t put any weight on his leg. He had to be lifted onto a stretcher and taken off the ice. The 23-year-old was taken to a hospital for X-rays.

Stamkos had 14 goals through 16 games for the Lightning this season and has been their best offensive player for several seasons. We have seen him take a puck to the face before and return to the game, so you know the former first overall pick is not soft by any means. If he misses a significant amount of time, it could become a serious challenge for Tampa Bay to remain in first place.

Chris Neil pours blood after taking puck to the face (GIF)

Chris-Neil-bleedingOttawa Senators forward Chris Neil took a puck to the face in the third period of a win over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night. Teammate Erik Karlsson went to flip the puck into the attacking zone and it caught Neil near the right eye, leaving a gash that went from above his eyebrow to the bottom of his nostril. There was a lot of blood.

In typical hockey player fashion, Neil missed only a shift and returned after getting stitched up. His new nickname could easily be “Scarface” once the wound heals.

We thought watching players pull out their own teeth was tough, but that made me cringe. I’d probably pass out if I saw that much blood pouring from my face.

Sam Gagner broken jaw

Edmonton Oilers center Sam Gagner suffered a broken jaw after being nailed by a high stick from Zack Kassian during the second period of Saturday’s preseason game between the Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs.

Kassian whipped his stick around his body and whacked Gagner in the jaw with it, leaving the Oilers center with a mess of a face. Kassian was suspended the rest of the preseason and the first five games of the regular season for the infraction.

Gagner says he is already doing well in his recovery. He shared a photo on Twitter Monday of how his face looked after the injury. It’s pretty nasty:

Cardinals DB Rashad Johnson lost tip of his finger making a tackle

Rashad-Johnson-CardinalsArizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson suffered an extremely uncommon injury during Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Saints. Fortunately, his career is not in jeopardy. Unfortunately, Johnson’s middle finger will never be the same.

The Arizona Republic’s Kent Somers reported on Monday morning that Johnson somehow lost a piece of one of his fingers while making a tackle against the Saints. The injury apparently occurred on a punt return when he was tackling Darren Sproles. The details are enough to make you cringe.

Somers later tweeted that it was actually Johnson’s left middle finger, not the right. The Cardinals later shared a photo of Johnson’s hand. Don’t worry, it was bandaged up.
