The Athlete: College football player Tyrone Prothro
The Injury: Broken tibia and fibula in his right leg
Why It Was So Crazy: Most of the players listed here have been able to make comebacks from their crazy injuries. Unfortunately, this University of Alabama wide receiver was unable to do it. After he sustained breaks to both of the bones in his lower left leg during a game in October 2005, Prothro tried his best to make a comeback. But, after rehabbing his leg extensively and doing everything in his power to get back onto the football field, he eventually stopped trying in 2007. Almost six years later, this photo still haunts us in our nightmares.
