We had to wait until week three of the preseason for a brutal, cringe-worthy injury, but thanks to Marc Mariani we now have one. Mariani, a third year pro, was returning a kick in last nights game against the Cardinals when his leg got tangled up on his way to the ground. The end result was something grizzly, something that would cause more pain than we hope to endure in a lifetime.
We knew very little about Mariani, so we did a little research:
- Went to the University of Montana
- Named to the 2010 Pro Bowl as a return specialist…as a rookie!
- Lists his sports hero’s as Jerry Rice and Brett Favre
- Holds Titans single-season total return yards record: 1,859 yards
All we know know is that it’s a broken tibia and that surgery has already been done. Although no date has been set for his return, it doesn’t look he’ll be back anytime soon. Enough blabbing…check out the leg breaking action below!
