    Beware before watching this...

    This is hard to watch. He is a leader and an awesome player.

    Report is a fractured femur. For those who don't know where that is that's the biggest bone in your body...the thigh bone. Thoughts are with him today. Ugh.

    I heard about this but haven't seen it (can't view video's at work) but like you said I heard it was pretty painful to watch. He needed to be carted off. I'll definitely watch this when I get home, to see how bad it is.

    I watched it and went, "Huh? Where? Okay, replay . . hmm, wher-OH GOD."

    Yeah I caught the tail end of this last night when he was being carted off the field.

    This was pretty hard to watch last night. I really like Henderson and my thoughts are with him today.

    I finally got the chance to watch the play, and holy shit that was pretty bad, I can't even phantom the pain he was when that happen. I wonder how long he's going to be out for, I'm sure it takes a while to rehabilitate an injury of this nature.

    OUCH. I missed this when it happened, that's brutal. He'll be out for a while. Hopefully he recovers and is back on the field as soon as possible. If that happened to me, when I got back it'd always be in the back of my mind. But then again, that's why I don't play football. Ha.

    Might be some good news for Henderson after all of this...

    Somehow...

    Wow! I'm extremely surprised that an injury that drastic might not take a year to heal. That's tremendous news for Henderson, his family and the Vikings. He'll have a lot of hard work to do to heal that injury, but in the end it will be worth it.

    That is one nasty injury. I kinda did what Cons did, saw him get hit initially and was like "ouch...ok that wasn't so ba...oh wtf!!!!!" The point where his leg looks like a spaghetti noodle flying in the air...yech heh. The only thing I've seen that was really worse was when a kid Iwas playing against had a compound fracture.

    Anyway if anyone can recover from this type of injury he can.
