It's at 40 seconds....if you really want to see it. It's crazy because he wasn't doing anything crazy....just running a route. Plus it was weird because it broke the opposite way you normally see a break.

On Day 2 of U.S. Army All-American Bowl practices in San Antonio, Notre Dame wide receiver commit Torii Hunter Jr. broke his left femur Tuesday while running a routine route and underwent reconstructive surgery on Wednesday.

ďIíve never been around something like that," said Rivals.com national analyst Mike Farrell. "Iíve been around injuries. I saw LeSean McCoy break his ankle, and that was pretty horrible, and Iíve seen kids get injured pretty badly, but this was something different. You could tell by the way he went down in so much pain. Everything went silent, and everybody was like, ĎWhat happened?í because it wasnít a contact injury.

"It didnít look like there was something where he planted and just blew out his ACL. Iíve seen kids blow out their ligaments, Iíve seen kids with dislocated knees, and thereís always a level of pain, but not like this. This was a very sobering, horrible moment, because this is a good kid. ... Iím not talking about him like his career is over, but Iím just talking about [Tuesday] that whole practice changed for everybody who saw that.Ē

The son of Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter Sr., Junior hauled in 71 catches for 1,235 yards and 14 touchdowns this past fall, leading Prosper (Texas) High (10-3) to the third round of the Class 4A Division II state playoffs. He's currently ranked the No. 21 wideout and No. 181 senior recruit nationally by Rivals.com.

[Also: SEC's bowl season should give Notre Dame a boost vs. Alabama]

Not only will Hunter Jr. miss Saturday's U.S. Army All-American Bowl, but the Major League Baseball prospect likely won't return in time for his final prep baseball season. His recovery could take 6-8 months, his father told ESPN.

"He's a tough boy," said Torii Hunter Sr. "He's distraught right now, he's never had an injury before. I told him he'll bounce back. I know he will.

"He's seen me fight through injuries, so he knows it can happen. You just have to work hard."

I can't watch it. Breaking your femur is one of the worst possible things you can do. It's also potentially VERY dangerous.

Nothing looked bad from the video. He just went down. Freakish that it happened, but nothing looked horrible.

How about a compound fracture of one. I did that and it stuck out of my leg and looked like a broken splintered stick.

Wow...Am I wrong or is that known as the most painful bone in the body to break?

If it compounds through the femoral artery it gets dangerous.

Probably not wrong. Breaking your corpora cavernosa might be bad as well.

The way he put his foot down and his leg started bending....I thought he was going to hyper-extend his knee.....but then his lower leg just snapped. It was weird as hell.

Well, I hope you went to a doctor. They won't heal right if you just rub dirt on them and walk it off.

He'll be just fine.

I mean, hell, if he can showboat and laugh while catching passes with one hand, then he certainly can make it all look easy and smile while running routes with one leg.
