Joba Chamberlain Nearly Bled Out On The Floor Of Rebounderz

A gruesome and scary update to the story of Joba Chamberlain, who yesterday suffered an open dislocation while playing with his son at a Florida indoor trampoline arena. Via Hardball Talk,

Joba Chamberlain lost so much blood Thursday when he hurt his ankle while playing with his son that there initially was concern for his life, a Yankees' source said.


An open dislocation is not a regular old dislocation that can be popped back into place. It's when the bone shoots through the skin. Don't google it.

Chamberlain's son, Karter, who is five years old, was unhurt, Cashman said. When Chamberlain was hurt, bone was sticking out of his ankle and he was bleeding profusely, a team source said. Paramedics were called and Chamberlain was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

That's it for Joba's season, and, potentially, his career.

UPDATE: It wasn't Rebounderz.
