Football, and the Super Bowl, is an essential piece of American society. This year’s Super Bowl will take place in Houston, Texas on Sunday, February 5th. Football fans across the country will cook up their favorite snacks and enjoy the big game. However, amidst all the excitement, many fans forget the serious danger looming on the field for NFL players. This post identifies some of the worst Super Bowl injuries in the game’s history.
Serious Super Bowl Injuries
Football is one of the most popular sports in the country, but also one of the most dangerous. Even though players wear pads, jarring collisions and hard hits often cause traumatic injuries.
In the 2015 Super Bowl, Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane suffered a gruesome arm injury that required immediate surgery. In a similar incident, Charles Woodson fractured his collarbone in the 2011 Super Bowl. These injuries highlight the fact that broken bones are a common occurrence in football, in addition to other injuries like concussions.
In 1989, Bengals player Tim Krumrie suffered arguably the worst injury in Super Bowl history. While making a tackle, he broke his tibia and fibula. Video technology wasn’t as clear in 1989, but the clip of the injury is still difficult to watch.
