Most Recent Breaks and Tears in Sports

Here are your most recent, most notable broken bones and torn ligaments in the sports world over the past couple of weeks…

In Basketball:

Kevin Love

Star forward for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Kevin Love, will miss 6-8 weeks because of a broken right hand, which happened during a workout.  The good news is that he will not need surgery.

In Football:

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew suffered a left foot injury and is sporting crutches and a boot while on the sidelines.  How much time he will miss has yet to be determined.

Linebacker for the Tennessee Titans, Zac Diles, will go on the injured reserve list with a broken leg, which was broken in their game vs. the Buffalo Bills.

Detroit Lions receiver Nate Burleson’s right leg locked and hyperextended while being tackled following a 16-yard catch.  He will unfortunately miss the rest of this season.

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson broke his collarbone and will miss up to six weeks. He had a similar injury in the 2011 Super Bowl, when he broke his clavicle.

Joe Mays, the Denver Broncos middle linebacker, is out for the rest of the season after suffering a fractured left tibula near his ankle.
