Warning: The following video is graphic in nature.

In the eighth inning of his team's victory over the Mets last night, Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson covered first base on a ground ball hit by Eric Young.

Unfortunately, Young's foot came down on the veteran's ankle toward the end of the play, causing Hudson to fall to the ground in obvious, severe pain.

Replays depict just how gruesome an injury the 15-year star suffered, as the bottom of his leg is twisted at a 90-degree angle.

Atlanta has since announced Hudson will undergo surgery and it seems very unlikely he will pitch again this season.
