After Gordon Haywards’ horrible injury last week, another body part completely twisted in the middle of a broadcast, this time an NFL game. Here’s the injury as it happened.

The offensive lineman had just caught a ball in the end-zone, when he landed awkwardly, and his knee bent.
After official review, the play was later overturned and ruled as an incomplete pass. A decision criticised by many, including former NFL V.P. of Officiating Dean Blandino, who now works for FOX: “to me that looks like a catch”.
Lions’ Wide Receiver Golden Tate tweeted: “Wow!! They took away that man’s TD after holding on to it while getting injured???? #NEWLOW”
The team, which lost 20-12 to the New Orleans Saints, had a devastating afternoon: Guard Kyle Long hurt his hand in the first quarter and center Cody Whitehair suffered an elbow injury in the second half.
