When any football player suits up and takes the field, there is a chance they can be injured, and injured badly at that!
So as I watched the 49er's/Seahawks game yesterday I don't think I was the only one left with my jaw on the floor as NaVorro Bowman suffered what could have been one of the nastier injuries we've seen in awhile.
OOOUCCHH! What the video doesn't show is about ten guys jumping on him thinking it's a fumble! And to add insult to injury, some Seahawks fans actually threw popcorn at him as he was being carted off the field!
Weirdly enough, after seeing this I couldn't help but flashback to another "visual scar" from the 2002 Fiesta Bowl...which I still have no recollection of who won the game, but will NEVER forget this injury (only watch if you're ready to squirm some more):
