LSU Freshman Trey Lealaimatafao Suffers Scary Arm Injury In Football Facility

LSU Tigers freshman Trey Lealaimatafao had a scary moment on Monday at the team’s football facility. Lealaimatafao suffered an injury that was easily avoidable had the defensive tackle controlled his emotions.

According to The Times-Picayune, Lealaimatafao was was rushed to the hospital after punching through a window and severely cutting his arm.

Sources who were present said Lealaimatafao, a four-star recruit from San Antonio, Texas, was upset about a disagreement with his girlfriend, and punched the window between the weight room and indoor practice facility. The sources said the glass “tore through” Lealaimatafao’s bicep and they could see the bone underneath.

“It was horrific,” said one witness. “Horrible to see.”

Instead of working his way into LSU’s rotation, the 6’2, 301-pound San Antonio native is now tasked with a long rehabilitation during his first year on campus. As of writing, no timetable for his return has been announced. He was the 26th-ranked defensive tackle for the class of 2014, according to Rivals.

Thankful that the injury wasn’t any worse, Lealaimatafao sent out the below tweet following the incident.

On Tuesday, Lealaimatafao updated everyone on his status.
