Marcus Lattimore injury update: South Carolina RB taken to hospital

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

South Carolina's Marcus Lattimore suffered a right knee injury in the second quarter of Saturday's game against Tennessee and has been taken by ambulance to the hospital.

South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore suffered a gruesome knee injury in the second quarter of Saturday's game against Tennessee. ESPN just reported that Lattimore was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

Here's video of the injury. Be warned: it's horrible.

At the end of his 11th carry of the day, Lattimore's right knee was hit low, and the result appeared to be a devastating injury. He immediately grabbed the leg, writhing in pain on the ground as South Carolina trainers rushed to his side. The cart was brought out, and his entire team surrounded Lattimore as the trainers worked to stabilize the knee. He put no weight on the knee, and was carted off after the trainers briefly worked on him.

This is the second year in a row that Lattimore has suffered a season-ending leg injury. As a sophomore, he tore his left ACL. The junior is first in South Carolina history with 38 rushing TDs and sixth in rushing yards, with 2,676. This season, he had gained 597 yards and scored 10 touchdowns, averaging 4.5 yards per carry.
