Video shows Mohamed Ibrahim had pop in his leg on nasty injury
Mohamed Ibrahim was having a monster game for Minnesota in their opener on Thursday until some bad luck struck.
The Golden Gophers running back left his team’s game against Ohio State after going down with a lower leg injury on a carry late in the third quarter. The injury happened as he was trying to escape a tackle attempt.
In the video, you can see something pop in Ibrahim’s left calf:

Nothing is confirmed, but Dr. David Chao diagnosed Ibrahim by video with a left Achilles tendon rupture, which would end the running back’s season.
Will be OK in long run but not this season. By video, clear left Achilles tendon rupture. Fairly classic. Season over and surgery. https://t.co/tUFeWjF6om
