South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore suffered a severe injury during a SC Gamecock’s game against The Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday – a game in which he had already racked up 65 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries.
It put his season totals at 143 rushes for 662 yards and 11 touchdowns.
During a running play, Tennessee’s Eric Gordon’s helmet smashed into Lattimore’s leg, sending him to the ground with his leg looking painfully dislocated. Paramedics and members of both teams rushed to his side before they wheeled him off on a cart, with uncertainty if he would ever play again. There were reports that his hit might have been as severe as some career-ending injuries that destroyed ACLs, PCLs and MCLs with past players.
After visiting Lattimore earlier today, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier announced that “Marcus had his right knee dislocated and the injury is something he can come back from to play football again.” According to Coach, team doctor Jeffrey Guy was able to put Lattimore’s knee back in place soon after he was taken from the field to the hospital. He also says Marcus has a good attitude about his condition and can take as long as he needs to recover.
Remember…just last year, he injured his LEFT knee and missed the last six games of the season!
Do you think Lattimore should call it quits?
