Kevin Ware Leg Injury: Gruesome, Caught on Camera

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Kevin Ware of Louisville is resting comfortably in the hospital this morning, hours after breaking his leg in arguably the most gruesome sports injury anyone has ever seen.

The incident took place in the first half of Louisville's Final Four victory of Duke, as the guard jumped to block a three-point attempt and landed awkward on his right leg.

As you can see in the following video, the body part immediately snapped in half in front of the Cardinals' bench, as teammates reacted in horror. Be warned: this is graphic in nature.

"I went over and I was going to help him up and then all of a sudden, I saw what it was and I almost literally threw up,'' said Coach Pitino of Ware's bones protruding through his skin.

School officials said doctors reset the bone and inserted a rod into the tibia during a two-hour procedure last night.

Friends and teammates are now hoping Ware can accompany them to the Final Four in Atlanta this weekend.

Pitino left his player the squad's West Regional trophy and we send Ware our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
