Ravens Photographer Suffers Torn Achilles, Returns in Walking Boot (GIFs)

Ravens Photographer Tears Achilles

Here’s another reminder that it isn’t just the athletes who risk injury out on the field.   The people in ancillary positions, like the team photographers, also put their tendons on the line each and every week of the NFL season. That was definitely the case with Phil Hoffmann, photographer for the Baltimore Ravens.

Hoffmann got smashed by Ravens receiver Tandon Doss, who was tackled into him during Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.  He tore his Achilles tendon on the play, but he tenaciously came back in a walking boot to cover the rest of the game. What a guy!

You can take a look at Hoffmann’s injury in the GIFs below, one in regular speed and one in slow-motion. Ouch!
