Joe Theismann, who suffered a career-ending broken leg when the ruthless Lawrence Taylor sacked him, offered a quick bit of support to Louisville’s Kevin Ware.
During Sunday’s Elite Eight showdown between Louisville and Duke, Ware leaped forward in an attempt to block a shot. He came down hard on his right leg and it snapped under his weight. The break was gruesome, and some of Ware’s teammates shed tears right there on the court.
Watching Duke/ Louisville my heart goes out to Kevin Ware.

Here’s a video of Theismann’s snapped leg. It is not for everybody. If you feel as if you may have a queasy stomach, please, do not push play.
