Warrington Wolves player Paul Wood ruptured one of his testicles during a rugby match on Saturday and had to have surgery to remove it.
Wood took a knee to the groin only one minute into the second half of the team's defeat to the Leeds Rhinos in the Grand Final.
Wood told BBC Radio Manchester, "I'm not too bad, it sounds worse than it is.
"An accidental knee caught me. I could feel I wasn't right, but I managed to stay on for 20 minutes until [the coach] Tony [Smith] took me off."
Wood also said that his teammates have been giving him some good natured ribbing about the whole ordeal, saying, "They're relentless really, they absolutely give it to me. I've had every text message under the sun to wind me up - but I can take what's happened."
Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker could miss multiple games after dislocating his non-throwing shoulder for the second time this season.
Dr. Mike Pagnani, director of Nashville Knee and Shoulder Center, said that once a player suffers this type of injury, it will continue to happen.
"Eventually, the pain will go away," Pagnani said. "The risk is, it's going to happen again and it's probably just a matter of time before it does. He is going to go out there and he is going to get hit wrong and it's going to pop out again. And he'll go through the same scenario where they pop it back in, and he's going to be real sore for a week or two until he ultimately gets it fixed."
The doctor also said that surgery is inevitable and, if surgery is required, Locker would be out for the season.
Locker is already out for this week's game against the Minnesota Vikings, but has not decided on surgery as of yet. Locker's MRI showed no structural damage to his shoulder.
Brandon Meriweather and Aldrick Robinson are both inactive for the Redskins game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this afternoon after a freak collison due pregame warm ups.
According to the Washington Post, Robinson was hit in the head by Meriweather's errant knee as Robinson went to pick up a ball in the end zone.
Meriweather hasn't played a game all season due to a right knee injury and will not play today after limping off the field. Robinson was on the field for some time as both Washington and Tampa Bay trainers worked on him.
Robinson eventually got up and went to the locker room and will not play today.
In another chapter of why hockey players are the toughest athletes in all of sports, a Russian hockey player lost a pint of blood after being sliced by a blade in the neck and will only miss one game.
That's right, one game.
Denis Sokolov, a defenseman for the Yekaterinburg Automobilist of the KHL, was cut in the carotid artery by former NHL player Jan Bulis. Sokolov left the ice with a pool of blood behind him.
Jump ahead to the 1:14 mark for the footage. Not for the squeamish.
Sokolov has said that he will miss the team's next game against Dynamo Moscow on Friday, but will suit up to play against Khanty-Mansiysk on September 20.
Sokolov is very lucky that it wasn't more serious than it was and it goes to show that this accident, although rare, is a part of the game.
This again proves that hockey players are the toughest athletes in the world of sports.
Spanish bull fighter Fernando Cruz is in stable condition after an absolutely horrible goring inside a Madrid bull ring.
The video below is not for the squeamish.
Cruz gets gored by BOTH of the bull's horns. He received wounds to his stomach and right thigh.
He was transported to Madrid's Hospital Virgen del Mar where he is in stable condition.
Dr. Maximo Garcia Padros said, via Fox News Latino, “His condition is stable. He had a very troubled night despite the sedatives, all due to the magnitude of the mishap. And it’s still too soon to guess what’s going to happen in the coming hours,”
He also said that Cruz's goring was the worst that he has seen this year.
Next time, Cruz should listen to Vernon from Breakfast Club.
According to The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo, Boston Red Sox outfielder Ryan Sweeney is expected to miss eight weeks after punching a door during last night's win against the Detroit Tigers.
Sweeney punched the door after Omar Infante robbed him of a base hit in the eighth inning.
“I just came down, walked down the stairs, and kind of punched the door a little bit,’’ said Sweeney after the game. “I’ve done [it] before, but maybe not to this extent.’’
Sweeney injured the outside knuckle on the pinkie of his throwing hand. He said he was unable to throw, so Cody Ross replaced him in the ninth.
Ryan Kalish is expected to replace Sweeney on the Red Sox roster.
During yesterday's Wimbledon semifinals match between Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Andy Murray, Tsonga suffered what appeared to be a painful shot. At least for us guys.
Tsonga would recover to take the third set, but lose the match to Andy Murray.
Who says tennis players aren't tough?
