Report: Grambling’s Danquarian Fields taken to hospital after dislocating knee

Danquarian Fields injury

Grambling Tigers defensive back Danquarian Fields suffered a nasty leg injury at the end of the first quarter of Saturday’s game against Louisiana Tech.

Fields went down with a nasty leg injury and there appeared to be a bone sticking out around his right knee. The Monroe News Star’s Corey Diaz reports that Fields was taken to the hospital with a dislocated right knee.

The good news is Fields gave a thumbs up when he was carted off the field.

Several Tech Bulldogs were gathered around him wishing him the best.

Fields, a senior, had an interception in the team’s opener last week.

Ronda Rousey shares story of her nasty finger injury

Rowdy Ronda Rousey

The finger injury that Ronda Rousey suffered while shooting FOX drama show “9-1-1” is nothing to joke about.

Earlier Tuesday, we shared details of the report regarding the nasty injury Rousey sustained and how she kept filming until saying something during a break.

After word of the injury went public, Rousey posted about it on her Instagram account. She even included a photo (only look if you think you can handle it since it’s graphic).

Here is the caption Rousey shared on her Instagram post:

“So the word is out I nearly lost my finger shooting @911onfox. Freak accident, first take of the day a boat door fell on my hand, I thought I just jammed my fingers so I finished the take before looking (I know it sounds crazy, but I’m used to live audiences and never showing pain unless I’m supposed to) after a break in the action I told our director the situation and was rushed via ambulance to the hospital where they promptly reattached my bone and tendon with a plate and screws. I returned to filming the next day and finished my scenes before returning home to recover. Modern medicine amazes me, I already had 50% range of motion back in 3 days. There’s so much more than I can write here, stayed tuned via @rondarouseydotcom for the full story. And of course tune in to see how well I can act like my finger didn’t just fall off in this upcoming season of @911onfox”.

Rousey says she is amazed by modern medicine and how she had 50 percent of her range of motion back in three days. I think the real amazing part is not medicine, but how Rousey reacted to what seems to be a pretty serious situation. She continued to film, played through the pain, and was back to work the next day. That’s the toughness of a true MMA legend for you.

Corey Kluber getting X-ray after taking line drive off pitching elbow

Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber was on the wrong end of a hard line drive hit by Brian Anderson in Wednesday’s game against the Miami Marlins. The ball hit directly off his pitching elbow moving over 100 miles per hour.

Kluber could not even hold his arm up after and used his glove hand to try to flip the ball.

Kluber left the game immediately and is getting an X-ray.

The 33-year-old starting pitcher has been in the top three in American League Cy Young voting each of the last three seasons, and won the award in 2017. He has been off to a rough start so far in 2019, with an earned run average of 5.81 in his six starts prior to the injury. He will be fortunate to avoid a serious injury with this one, and Cleveland’s fortunes could also ride on the results.

Look: Klay Thompson suffers nasty finger injury

Klay Thompson

Klay Thompson suffered a nasty finger injury during the Golden State Warriors’ game against the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night.

Thompson jammed his left hand on a push-off and ended up with his left ring finger being dislocated around the knuckle.

Thompson exited the game midway through the first quarter. He was examined by a trainer and later returned in the second quarter, with the team saying he had suffered a sprain.

The Warriors sharpshooter was nonchalant about the injury, acting like it was nothing.

DeMarcus Cousins and Shaun Livingston are set to miss the team’s game on Wednesday at Portland, so it’s entirely possible that Thompson joins them to rest and heal.

Badou Jack suffers nasty cut in middle of head during fight

Badou Jack cut

Boxers suffering cuts on their face during fights is nothing new, but what happened to Badou Jack on Saturday night was unlike something most had ever seen.

Jack was cut in the middle of his head, between his eyes, during the 7th round of his fight against Marcus Browne at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The cut was deep and long and got worse and worse over the ensuing rounds. Blood was spewing across Jack’s face, onto the canvas, and bloodied referee Tony Weeks in the ring.

Jack still managed to get through the entire fight, though he lost to Browne via unanimous decision in their WBC light heavyweight title fight. After his win, Browne was unapologetic about the cut.

We’ve seen plenty of nasty injuries in the ring, and this was right up there.

Travis Wood left with mangled finger after crossbow accident

If hunting with a crossbow is your thing, you might want to take what happened to Detroit Tigers pitcher Travis Wood as a friendly reminder to always put safety first.

When pitchers and catchers arrived at spring training this week, Wood revealed to reporters that he suffered a nasty finger injury in a crossbow accident about a month ago. As Chris McCosky of the Detroit News notes, Wood said his right index finger (fortunately his non-throwing hand) was nearly snapped in two. What he has been left with four weeks later could give you nightmares.

If you have a weak stomach, now would be the time to look away:


Zach Werenski‏ posts Twitter photo of nasty eye injury

Zach Werenski

Zach Werenski is one tough dude.

The Columbus Blue Jackets rookie defenseman took a puck to the face during the second period of Sunday’s Game 3 against the Pittsburgh Penguins, yet he returned to the game in the third period. But all was not pretty with his face.

As Werenski was skating off the ice after getting hit, the Penguins were able to score. Though Werenski returned for the third period, his eye swelled shut in the intermission prior to overtime, so he missed the extra period. Pittsburgh won 5-4 in OT to take a 3-0 series lead.

After the game, Werenski posted a photo that shows his swollen and discolored eye. It’s not for the squeamish:
