On Thursday night, UAB offensive lineman John Hix suffered a gruesome leg injury. The game between the Blazers and Rice Owls was being aired on FOX Sports 1. Following the play, the broadcast refused to show any replays of the injury, but compared it to Louisville guard Kevin Ware’s.
The 6’2, 270lb junior from Auburn, Alabama was carted off the field.
Following are a couple of photos of the injury, but proceed with caution, they are very graphic in nature.
