Originally written November 17, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Saints have lost starting cornerback Jabari Greer with what appears to be a very serious leg/knee injury. Saints medical staff placed an air cast over the leg and Greer was carted off. Greer waved to the crowd on the way out but replays showed a gruesome scene. Greer’s leg gave out at the knee as he landed on the play and was twisted in a gruesome manner. Running back Darren Sproles left holding his leg, as well. Sproles was seen receiving attention on the sideline training table. Sideline reporter Pam Oliver reported the Saints said it’s an ankle injury and they expect that Sproles will return. Greer had not missed a start this season but will almost certainly miss a lot of time after the severity of the damage that was very obvious to everyone watching is assessed. Twitter has flooded with pictures and videos of Greer’s leg but I will leave it for you to decide if you care to stomach it. It’s not pleasant.     You can find me on Twitter @robsirloin. In addition to covering the NFC South, I also document the misadventures of the Cleveland Browns for Dawg Pound Daily.
