West Indies batsman Jonathan Carter spent several minutes on the ground in agony after inside-edging himself right in the nuts during his squad’s one-day international against England today in Barbados. Yowza! The Guardian’s live blog put it thusly:
Ryan Jimmo took a Francimar Barroso kick straight to the crotch, leading to a delay during their light heavyweight bout at tonight’s UFC Fight Night.
Here’s some fun coverage from the Uruguayan premier league, with C.A. Fenix back José Ignacio Pallas getting a knee to his nose as reward for some tough defending. The result: blood gushing from multiple places! (He quickly returned to the match.)
At the Lexus Cup of China, the International Skating Union's Grand Prix of Figure Skating, there was a real humdinger of a bell-ringer between China's Han Yan and Japan's Yuzuru Hanyu in warmups. YouTube shows both men gliding backwards at concussion-ready speeds and turning into one another, chin-to-noggin, too…
Congratulations, you injured yourself doing something active. Such things are liable to happen when you leave the couch. But the choice between Advil, Tylenol, aspirin, and so many other pills can be daunting. Here's what you should reach for, and when.
Discussion of the Tobacco Road rivalry between Duke and North Carolina usually focuses on basketball, but the two teams have long had a national presence in men's lacrosse. Both squads are ranked again this season, and last night's 11-8 Blue Devils victory in Chapel Hill wasn't without the bitter, tough play laxbros…
Do you want to know why Florida should stop worrying about losing its spring-training teams to Arizona? This. This is why.
We got a tip tonight from Albert at 8:20 p.m. and 50 seconds:
We already showed you this brutal connection between hockey stick and face, and it happened again during today's gold medal match between Holland and Argentina. The Netherlands ended up taking gold with a 2-0 win, but injury was added to insult when Argentina's Mariela Scarone let her face get in the way of a Dutch…
The Portland Timbers turned away San Jose last night at Jeld-Wen Field with a 2-1 win over MLS' top squad. It didn't come without some pain and suffering, though, as defender David Horst lay his face on the line for his team to block a shot in the 37th minute. Lest the reputation that soccer players are weak…
Ronda Rousey seized the Strikeforce bantamweight title last night with a gruesome win over Miesha Tate in Columbus that hurts just to watch.
Late in the first half of last night's 104-88 Suns win over the Wizards, JaVale McGee—The Best Thing In The NBA—suffered that most unkindly of cuts (though, mercifully, exactly how it happened isn't explicitly clear).
Timofey Mozgov, best known for being the most grateful person in the world to Kendrick Perkins, just suffered a painful-looking—and painful-sounding—leg injury during the Nuggets' matchup with the Lakers in Denver tonight. (We isolated the court audio so you can hear his screams of pain that much more clearly.) If…
To celebrate Blood Week, here's the nastiest injury screencaps from the past three years, as archived by 30fps. Herein lies brutal ACL tears, broken ankles, snapped tibias, and—of course—plenty of blood. Consider yourself warned! (Most screencaps can be clicked to expand for closer inspection.)
That's Denver Broncos offensive lineman Chris Kuper with a left ankle pointing about 90 degrees in the wrong direction. He can expect a call about post-career opportunities soon from Tim Krumrie.
Actually, it was more like one second, as it was a single punch from Johny Hendricks that took Jon Fitch out of their welterweight match at UFC 141.
This hurts to watch. In a 5-3 win over Boston last night, the kind of win that Rangers fans have dreamed of, the kind that eliminated Toronto from playoff contention and made it that much harder for Carolina to worm its way in, there was so much good. The Rangers scored five unanswered goals. It seems unlikely Jan…
