The Twitterverse Reacts To The Lattimore Injury, Plus The Photo Everyone Is Talking About
If you haven’t seen the injury Marcus Lattimore suffered today, you can check it out here.
Via @reddusfoximus, here is a snapshot of the gruesome injury as well:
Lattimore suffered an ACL injury last season, to his other knee. He’s been one of the best running backs in the entire nation the past two years, and was a surefire NFL player before today. It would not be a stretch to assume his football career is probably over. Even Steve Spurrier said the below, clearly referencing that this could be it for Marcus.
Steve Spurrier on Lattimore: It’s pretty severe. Wonderful things are going to happen for him … whatever field in life.”
