Once they realized what had happened, the players in the immediate vicinity of Hurns quickly turned around and tried not to look at it. Below are photos and a video of Hurns’s injury. As a warning, it is gross.

The injury caused a lengthy delay, and Hurns eventually left the field on a stretcher. Getty photographer Tom Pennington caught Hurns writhing on the ground just after the injury occurred.
