GIF: Oklahoma State player’s gruesome broken leg during Cotton Bowl

Warning: Proceed with caution.

I’m not sure if these injuries are happening more often, or if we just have more television angles and footage nowadays. Nonetheless, Oklahoma State junior offensive lineman Brandon Garrett suffered a gruesome broken leg against Missouri in the Cotton Bowl.

Garret was hit from behind while blocking for running back Desmond Rolland. He immediately went down, leg painfully snapped and hanging.

Garret joins Kevin Ware, John Hix and Anderson Silva as athletes, across the broad spectrum of sports, suffering a similar injury.

Oklahoma State lost the game to Missouri, 41-31.
