Eagles' Leonard Weaver leaves with disturbing knee injury

Eagles fullback Leonard Weaver left today’s game against the Packers with a nasty knee injury.

The way Weaver’s knee bent was so disturbing that one player felt nauseous at the sight of it, Pam Oliver of FOX reported.

The Eagles have announced that Weaver has a left knee sprain and will not return. From the look of things, Weaver won’t be able to return to the field any time soon.

  1. My guess as a Med-Student is, that this is way more severe than a sprained knee.
    Probably PCL, MCL, and Patella, probably some muscle and tendon damage.

  2. His knee looked like my lawn chair when I accidentally folded it up backwards. See you in 2011 hopefully, Leonard.

  3. Yeah, it’s never good when a player leaves the field crying, and I mean that with no disrespect to Leonard Weaver. That was horrifying to watch.
    And why does “Med-Student” require capitalization? Are you some sort of deity student?

  4. This injury was truly terrible to watch. It was also disturbing to see the other Eagle stand up and then fall over on a later play. Too many injuries for one game.

  5. It brought back memories of Napoleon McCallum’s knee injury near the goal line, many years ago.
    Minus all the blood of course.

  6. When it happened to Napoleon McCallum there was also vascular damage. It was a very serious career-ending injury. Hopeful Weaver’s is not as bad as Naps.

    My guess as a Med-Student is you should shut the hell up.

    So, no arguments here, just profanity?

  8. @They call u ipod;
    Call me an idiot because I only have a criminal justice degree, but……YOU’RE A DICK!!!!

  9. Looks like a pissing contest to see who has a more successful career. Isn’t there somewhere else you guys can have this debate???

  10. @ipod:
    Dude, get the hell out of here. You don’t even have to have a high school diploma to know there was serious damage. You just wanted to let everyone know that you’re a med student. No one gives a shit.

  11. Players were dropping like flies in that game, no way in hell does the season need to be extended to 18 games.
    Also, did Pam Oliver swallow Oprah Winfrey?
