Watch It Here

This one is the godfather of all graphic sports injuries. The Redskins and quarterback Joe Theismann thought they could attempt some trickeration on this November 1985 Monday Night Football battle, but their flea-flicker did not fool the menacing Giants' defense. As Hall of Famers Lawrence Taylor and Harry Carson sandwiched Theismann for the sack, Taylor's knee went right into Theismann's leg and broke his tibia and fibia. Because of the compound fracture, the bones in Theismann's leg did not grow back properly during healing and he was forced to retire.
