Watch It Here

Bush was actually recruited to Louisville as a quarterback by notorious liar/motorcycle enthusiast Bobby Petrino, so really he shouldn't have been on the field in the first place when this happened. His senior season in 2006, Bush was hauled down on what looked like a routine tackle; however, the Kentucky linebacker snapped Bush's tibia as he fell on him, ending his season and forcing the star running back to undergo two surgeries and have a steel rod inserted. Things have gone fine for Bush since then, though, as he returned to the field in 2008 and signed a four-year, $14 million deal with the Bears last offseason.
