    Ouch. I have a hard time seeing the guy as a real pro prospect now, which is quite a shame. Hopefully he can bounce back.

    I agree it was an ugly injury, such a shame that the knee was destroyed along with the break. I knew the leg was broken immediately.

    The only thing going for him is Willis McGehee's knee was ugly also. And he had a decent NFL carrier. So it can be done, but it will be a hard road for him.

    When it occurred, I wanted to say that he might be able to follow McGahee's road to recovery, but four knee ligaments and a broken leg seems too much to overcome.

    Horrible injury (wasn't a huge fan of it being replayed over and over all day from the behind shot, where you could see how horrific the damage done was).

    Hope the kid can stay patient and rehab it, anything is possible, but he's going to have a serious hill to climb to salvage any pro aspirations.

    What I found disturbing was how they helped him limp to the ATV. That was brutal to watch. Best wishes to this kid.

    Hope he had an insurance policy.

    I've followed this guy since his freshman year. He was the real deal. Had superstar written all over. This is bad.

    I've watched it once and that's all I can handle, barf. Feel terrible for him.
