Watch It Here

This is probably the worst injury ever to occur in a Super Bowl, with Krumrie (a defensive lineman for the Bengals) on the wrong side of history in January of 1989. As he attempted to tackle 49ers running back Roger Craig, Krumrie's foot stuck in the ground. His and Craig's combined weight put too much pressure on his leg, graphically snapping his tibia and fibula. After having a steel rod inserted, Krumrie was ready to play by the next season and went on to play six more years before retiring in 1994.
