Doubtful, with soething like that i am sure there had to be a lot of irreparable muscle damage. Gonna be more than a year before he can get back at it. Not to mention if he does, he will probably need a second surgery to remove the plates and screws if he wants to.jump on it. Luckily hes a sophomore, he might warm the bench senior year...

You would be surprised. Looks worse, because its compound, but nasty leg breaks have happened to a lot of people, and they come back. Michael Bush in the NFL did almost the same thing, and he's in the NFL now. (He was tweeting to the guy, since it was a similar injury and they both played for Louisville). Plates and screws are pretty commonplace.

Several sports surgeons have said that its about a 1 year rehab. Might not be playing much, but might make it back. If not next year, then the year after.

Patrick Edwards (who's on the Lions currently) was one of the nastier ones I've seen. No bones through the skin, but has to be just as bad on the inside.

My brother had the same.thing happen last year doing motocross. Only.his did not.pop out, but they had to cut out a significant amount of damaged muscle tissue. If he wants to continue doing motocross, they said he should.have the plates and screws removed once its healed. It will all.depend on how his muscles are, the bone is no big deal in the grand scheme of things. Given the time off it, he will fall behind the other players in conditioning...

Yeah, the plate can then be a stress point. Gronk with the Patriots re-borke his arm this year, the first break they put in a plate, the 2nd break was not a re-injury, but broke at the edge of the plates.

I read reports that three people on the bench threw up. I'm happy they didn't show that, because seeing somebody throwing up makes me throw up.

It's a nasty cycle

This reminds me of three a days in high school for football. Almost 100 degrees, in pads, middle of the day we're in a circle around the coach after doing a bunch of sprints and other crap. One guy tossed his helmet up and puked. The chain reaction of puking continued until everyone else on the field had puked including coaching staff.

So, you're cool with a bone sticking out of a leg, but stomach juices get to you?

Well, I wouldn't say I'm cool with a bone out of a leg. but the internet has desensitized me for the most part.

However, I am not desensitized to the smell of vomit.

Your brother is not likely as well conditioned as this particular athlete is.

Your brother doesn't have a full time training staff tending to his every need on a daily basis including strength and conditioning coaches, physical therapists, etc.

Your brother not only started behind this lad, but likely will not receive the same care during his recovery as kevin ware will.

There is no doubt his skills will diminish and he will need to get back up to speed as he recovers, but I don't think people realize what kind of athlete or what kind of talent you need to have to play an NCAA sport at this level.....

I don't know the exact numbers, but for arguments sake let's just figure you have 100 male students in a high school graduating class. Less than 1% of them will go and play a college sport, less than that will play at a D-1 school like Louisville (who typically is a top 25 Basketball team, meaning all 10-12 guys on their team are probably all top 150 athletes of ALL graduating high school seniors in their specific sport nationwide).....

The atheleticism, training, medical care, physical therapy, etc. he will receive makes it near impossible to compare to an injury you or I would have and our ability to recover.

The still photo is an excellent illustration to accompany the dictionary entry for "cringeworthy".
