VIDEO: Sean Payton Injury; Saints Coach Suffers Broken Knee And Tibia, Torn MCL On Sideline

It isn't just the NFL's players who are getting hurt in Week 6. Sean Payton's injured, too — and the Saints coach's injuries may be the most serious of the day in the league. Payton was injured when tight end Jimmy Graham was tackled into the sideline on this fourth quarter play.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Payton suffered an MCL tear and a tibia plateau fracture; that amounts to a broken knee and tibia, the sort of injury that would typically knock a player out for the season or year.

But Payton has continued to coach from the Saints sideline, sitting on a cart. It's a fair bet that Payton will say "You have to coach hurt," or something like it, after the Saints' NFC South tussle with the Buccaneers is over.
