Kevin Ware Suffers Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Leg Injury [UPDATE]

Kevin Ware leg injury The Louisville Cardinals made it to the final four on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, but before halftime and their 85-63 win over Duke, their guard, sophomore Kevin Ware was lifted onto a stretcher after breaking the bone in his right leg.

The injury, a result of landing wrong after jumping to block the ball, is being called the worst ever in basketball.

“The bone’s 6 inches out of his leg and all he’s yelling is, ‘Win the game, win the game,'” U of L coach Rick Pitino said. “I’ve not seen that in my life. … Pretty special young man.” 

In a cruel twist, Ware said “If God feels it’s supposed to happen, it’s going to happen” just a day earlier during a sit-down with to The Courier-Journal, in regards to playing with his friend, former Tennessee point guard Chris Jones.

Here’s a video of the leg turning to rubber, eerily reminiscent of Joe Theismann’s career-ending break.

The image of Hale’s teammates crying and wincing on the floor says it all…

[UPDATE] There is now an up close photo of the bone coming out of his leg. I would tell you not to look but it’s probably too late. (Sorry.) It’s so gruesome it almost looks like bad horror movie effects.
