South Carolina’s star running back, Marcus Lattimore, suffered a very severe knee injury today versus Tennessee, as he was hit helmet to knee. The Junior running back was just getting back to form after suffering a season ending injury last year to the other knee (torn acl).
Seeing that hit today live you knew it wasn’t good. The look of horror on Marcus face when he looked down at his leg told the entire story. That it is going to take a miracle from God to see him back on the field again. No details were given out of the specifics of the injury as of yet, but after the reporter spoke concerning the emotional state of Marcus & his mother…its just heartbreaking.
Every announcer spoke of how awesome a man Marcus is, and how no matter what happens they know he will be okay. I want to back up that sentiment saying the same. Coming from a faith filled background, I just hope that his family won’t let him give up, because Marcus is everything that’s good for the game of football. My heart goes out to his family, and I pray that the injury only look worse than it is, and there is an NFL team that will take a chance on Duncan, SC finest. #RebelNation Stand-Up
UPDATE: The word from the doctors is Marcus has a BROKEN FEMUR, BROKEN PATELLA, TORN ACL, TORN PCL, TORN MCL, & TORN LCL, which basically means he tore every ligament in his knee. Please keep the prayers going for this young man. It’s not over til God says it’s over. I believe in miracles.
