Holy crap. Never thought I'd see one worse than Willis McGahee but now I have.

I'd put it at number 2 right behind McGahee.

I think McGahee's looked worse at impact, but Lattimore's completely disconnected lower leg flopping around like that was worse for me. Yuck.

You guys must not have seen Deandre Brown a couple of years ago.

Man was that hard to watch. Everyone speaks of the kids character. He was so devastated. Good luck to you Marcus.

I was surprised they showed it so many times on tv. It was pretty horrific. I hope he can come back from it.

Tragic!! Fantastic young man, and a great talent, suffering a devestating injury. Prayers go out to Marcus and the entire Lattimore family. Godspeed in your recovery.

That is horrible.  Horrible tackle (head down, helmet to knee) and just horrible for Marcus.  After sufferring a torn ACL last year to the other knee.  Devastating.
Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Marcus.   Hope you make it back to 100% health.

SEC or not, my heart sank when they showed his face/reaction. Dear God I hope he can come back. You have the entire college football world's support, Marcus. Poor guy, what a special player too.

Nope, cannot watch it.  As a kid I remember watching Tim Krumrie's leg flop around like a dead fish while being broken and had no problem.  About 5 years later I dislocated my left knee pretty badly, tearing my ACL in the process.  Now, I don't have the stomach to watch any of it!  I saw the McGahee injury once during the replay when it happened and that is all I could see, I had to cover my eyes like a girl every time after that.
Good luck to Lattimore.
