Two Gruesome Leg Injuries From The AFL (Videos)
It was not a good weekend for the legs of Aussie Rules Footballers, as Robbie Gray of the Port Adelaide Power and Gary Rohan of the Sydney Swans both suffered frightening leg injuries that will end their respective seasons.
Rohan’s injury came during Sunday’s match against North Melbourne, as an opposing player rolled up on his ankle while chasing after a loose ball, resulting in a compound fracture to the left tibia of the Swans’ forward. He has since undergone surgery to insert a pin into his broken left leg, but there is no telling how long the injury will keep him out of action.
Check it out.
As for Gray’s gruesome injury, it occurred during Saturday’s match against Collingwood, as he landed awkwardly on his right leg during the final minutes of his team’s loss. Gray went down immediately, grabbing his right knee in pain. It has since been determined that the midfielder suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and will undergo season-ending surgery tonight.
Here is another look at the play that cost Gray the rest of his 2012 AFL season.
