Marcus Lattimore suffered a horrendous leg injury with five minutes remaining in the first half of Saturday’s showdown between South Carolina and Tennessee. While no official prognosis on his condition has been handed down as of yet, his year and the prospect of him going in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft are definitely done.
It remains to be seen if he will ever be able to fully recover from this. (Update: It wasn't as bad as it looked.)
Here is the play that ended a really promising young player’s season (warning: it’s heart-wrenching, don’t watch it if you are squeamish).
The Gamecocks ultimately won 38-35, but it’s probably safe to say that nobody in the locker room was celebrating when it was all said and done.
