GRUESOME INJURIES: THE CURSE OF MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL

Hank Williams, Junior wasn't ready for "Monday Night Football"
after being yanked from the opening for making comments about
President Obama and Hitler. The rest of the football nation wasn't
quite ready for another gruesome injury to cap the weekend of
football. Eric Foster of the Indianapolis Colts had his ankle twisted
in a way that an ankle is just not supposed to be twisted. The
injury was so flat-out gross that ESPN chose not to show it on
their morning  edition of "SportsCenter". That's kind of ironic,
they let the world see the train wreck that is Eduardo Perez, but
they won't  show us what happened to Foster. Why is it that these
gruesome injuries keep happening on Monday Night Football?

Here are the Top 5 worst injuries to occur on "Monday Night
Football".

5. TONY ROMO GETS A GIANT BREAK OF HIS CLAVICLE.
    On October 25 of last year, the Cowboys QB got driven
    into the ground by Michael Boley of the NY Giants. The
    hit snapped Romo's clavicle and ended his season, which
    is what many fans are hoping happens again sometime soon.



2. REGGIE GETS BUSH-WHACKED AND SUFFERS BROKEN LEG.
    Shortly after breaking up with Kim Kardashian, Saint Reggie
    suffered a broken leg on September 21, 2010. Didn't look all
    that bad in real time, but in slow motion, it caused more than
    a few people to flinch and say, "Oh, man. That's nasty.


3. ERIC FOSTER STARS IN THE SEQUEL TO "SIDEWAYS"
    October 3, 2011. Foster saw his season in this nasty collision.
    What more needs to be said? It was ugly.


2. NAPOLEON McCALLUM. HIDE THE WOMAN AND CHILDREN.
    Playing for the Raiders, the former Navy star got submarined
    by the San Francisco 49ers. McCallum tore every ligament and tendon
    in his knee, and the calf and hamstring muscles tore completely
    of the bone. He suffered serious nerve damage which almost forced
    doctors to amputate his leg.


1. THE END OF JOE THEISMAN AS WE KNEW HIM.
    The mother of all injuries on "Monday Night Football" and
    perhaps, ever. On November 18, 1985, the Washington Redskins
    QB had his leg snapped in two by Lawrence Taylor of the NY
    Giants. Theisman's career ended that night on the turf in D.C.
    The hit was featured prominently in the book and movie,
    "The Blind Side", and forced NFL teams to protect the QB
     like never before.
