VIDEO: Best's Scary Injury

Just a few minutes ago, Jahvid Best suffered a horrific-looking injury as he scored a touchdown against Oregon State. Now, there’s video:

It’s nearly impossible to watch that video without cringing and fearing the worst. The way his body immediately goes limp certainly conjures fears of paralysis.

And with the All-American Best currently in the Emergency Room at a local hospital, the injury provides an ominous reminder that beyond all the fanfare, with millions of fans across the country, billion dollar TV contracts, highlight shows, and larger than life superstars… At its core, football is still a dangerous, dangerous game. Even for the best of players, as Best’s injury proves.

That said, here’s to hoping all this melodrama will look ridiculous in hindsight, and the Best injury turns out to be one big, scary false alarm.
