And that's a picture of AP after he tore his ACL...and *Turf Toe
@Jaykub, also the biggest beast to come back the very next season and almost break the record for most rushing yards in a season, still being one of the few to rush over 2000 in a single season.
Also I don't think you need a nose to play hockey. All the other injuries directly effect their ability to play at a professional level.
@Meta1ACE, you need a leg. Gregory Campbell broke his and kept playing.
@The Stig, So did Bobby Baun
@Meta1ACE, True, but it isn't just about this particular injury. Rich Peverly collapsed on the bench during a game, was revived and asked to be put back in the game. I think that blows any other injury out of the water.
@FriendlyPlatypus, Yea, he was technically dead at the hospital, got revived and wanted to keep playing. That's uhh...that's some dedication right there.
@OutlawOwl, Miguel olivo, a Rockies catcher, passed a kidney stone during a game in 2010 and went back behind the plate. That hurts to type out.
@The Most Canadian, Don't forget about Ronnie Lott, told the doctors to cut his finger off to avoid missing games to have surgery, then went back in the game he injured it in.
my favorite kind of repost.
the hockey ones
Rugby is also hell
@Devils Avocado, it's when I run into the field and smash his head in with a hammer, but they should be fine with those helmets
@Devils Avocado, no it's when you stub your toe on the ground. This actually happened to me before and I ended up having to get surgery on my big toe because a piece of the bone broke off and shifted 180°. They had to flip it the right way and for the next couple of weeks I had a pin sticking out of my toe that was holding the bone in place
@addibruh, I've had it before, didn't break anything, but it is painful
@Vakidis, yea I was barefoot when it happened to me and my toe fit perfectly into a small toe. I've always wore shoes outside since
@Devils Avocado, actually it's "turf toe"
@Vakidis, Jack Lambert was forced to retire due to turf toe.
@Sortofslobro, yeah, that's the point I was making, but no one realized that lol
@Devils Avocado, reading riting and rithmetic be college level course today. Grade school is PE PC and pandering.
@Spider4x, Dion Sanders retired due to turf toe as well
I've never seen a pitcher go on the DL because of a blister. They've left games because they lose the ability to throw breaking pitches.
@Spider4x, yeah, but blisters can turn evil and convince the pitcher to throw the wrong pitch, making it that much harder for the catcher
It's simple science really
@Spider4x, Manu Ginobili had a testicle explode and he was back after a month. That's pretty awesome
@SchroedingerPussPuss, what? When was this I never heard about that
@TyIer Durden, February 4th, 2016 ESPN.go article. He's a master at dramatizing a foul, but this was just unexpected and he was taken to the hospital immediately. Back in the game after a month
You don't need your face skin to play hockey. But you 100% need your toes and fingers to play basketball and football. I don't know what's up with baseball though, for real, a damn blister?
@Punny lad, you can't pitch if your hand is messed up.
@AliG, i wouldn't call a blister on equal terms as a broken bone
@Punny lad, no one here is....the point is that if you're throwing a baseball 100 mph, a blister can drop that speed to 50. And blister means your curveball doesn't curve, and a hanging curveball gets dickslapped over the fence. Which isn't good. Don't speak on a subject if you don't know what you're talking about
Well I've never seen a member of cloud 9 or enemy have to leave a match because of an injury
@Knowledge is Power, This is true, although I feel that anything injury to hands/fingers would screw them over big time
