Edgar Sosa Injury: Dominican Guard Suffers Horrific Leg Break

Former Louisville point guard Edgar Sosa suffered a horrific broken leg during the Dominican Republic's win over Panama on Monday. Be forewarned, the link above does include a picture of the injury and it is not pretty.

Players were visibly crying on the court while Sosa was tended to. The injury was a complete break, which should keep him out of the rest of the 2011 FIBA Americas Championship. Sosa's loss is a big one for a Dominican Republic squad on the edge of Olympic qualification.

The Dominican Republic--led by coach John Calipari, Hawks forward Al Horford and Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva--is now 3-1 in group play following the win over Panama. Should the squad make it the championship final, they would earn an automatic bid to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
