Most Gruesome Sports Injuries [VIDEO]

I’m not going to lie – watching Boston Celtics’ guard Rajon Rondo dislocate his elbow on Saturday made me dry-heave.  That was a pretty nasty injury.

But what about some other sports injuries that we’ve cringed about? I’ve come up with a list of the top 5 most gruesome.  I hope you haven’t eaten yet.

LT Breaks Theismann’s Leg / Redskins vs. NY Giants – November 18, 1985: This was perhaps the sickest thing I’ve ever seen on live television. The Redskins were playing the Giants in a mid-November game. Lawrence Taylor breaks Theismann’s leg and we saw everything. I didn’t know a leg could do that!

 

Clint Malarchuk Bleeds (A lot) / Buffalo Sabres vs. St. Louis Blues – March 22, 1989: A skate caught Malarchuk on the neck – severing his internal carotid artery. Malarchuk’s doctors spent 90 minutes and used over 300 stitches to close the wound. He returned to action a week after this injury.

 

Allan Ray Nearly Loses An Eye / Villanova vs Pittsburgh – March, 2006: A skate caught Malarchuk on the neck – severing his internal carotid artery. Malarchuk’s doctors spent 90 minutes and used over 300 stitches to close the wound. He returned to action a week after this injury.

 

Shaun Livingston / Clippers vs. Bobcats – February 26, 2007: Livingston dislocated his left kneecap after landing awkwardly following a missed layup. He injured almost every part of his knee, tearing the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and the lateral meniscus, badly spraining his medial collateral ligament (MCL), and dislocating his patella and his tibia-femoral joint.

 

Willis McGahee / Miami vs. Ohio State - 2003 Fiesta Bowl: McGahee suffered a torn ACL, PCL and MCL in the 4th quarter of the National Championship Game when his left knee was bent backwards.
