One of the main reasons people want the NFL preseason games shortened is because of injuries like these.
During the second quarter of today’s Chargers-Vikings game in Minnesota, Chargers running back Branden Oliver suffered a gruesome injury.
Oliver caught a pass out of the backfield and looked to take a cut but as you can see in the clip, his Achilles tendon snap and his calf vibrates. Upon snapping, the tendon actually recoils back up into the calf, which though gruesome, is interesting to see.
Oliver was carted off and you can expect his injury to be serious.
Wishing a speedy recovery to Oliver.
