Twitter Reacts: Louisville’s Kevin Ware Suffers Devastating Leg Injury


During the first half of the Louisville Cardinals’ Midwest regional final against Duke on Sunday, guard Kevin Ware suffered a gruesome leg injury that left his teammates, coaches, the opposition and fans watching from all over the country in a state of shock, disbelief and enormous guilt.

With 6:33 remaining in the opening half, Ware went up to contest a three-point attempt by Tyler Thornton, only to land awkwardly on his leg.

The Cardinals bench appeared to be traumatized with what they saw. Early reports indicate that Ware’s shin bone was “fully protruding from his leg”. Other reports suggest that some players may have vomited upon seeing the injury.

Ware was taken off the court via stretcher and transported away via ambulance to Methodist Hospital. The school later confirmed that Ware did indeed suffer a broken leg.

I’m going to provide a link so that those who didn’t watch it live can take a look at what exactly happened. Viewer/Reader discretion is STRONGLY advised. It’s hard to watch.
