Did anyone see Clippers' Livingston dislocate his knee?

Guy needs to get in touch with the people that helped rehab Robert Edwards' leg. Stat. 8-o

Damn, that's tough just to look at. Reminds me of gruesome injuries to Napoleon McCallum and Willis McGahee. Just terrible to see that happen to someone. But, if a guy like Robert Edwards came back from a nearly equally devastating injury and play football, I think it's fair to say this guy has hope of coming back.

It's already been mentioned, but the worst I've ever seen live were Theisman & McGahee. Theisman's was the worst by far (IMO), partly because they showed it over and over and over and over again during the broadcast of the game. I'll also never forget LT's reaction. Once he heard Theisman screaming in pain he quickly motioned to the Washington sideline, waving for their trainers to get on the field. To this day whenever I see or hear Theisman all I can think of is "LT...snap!". McGahee's was brutal to watch also but to me Theisman's injury was the worst I ever saw live.

Livingston tore his ACL, MCL, PCL, and lateral meiniscus, as well as dislocating his tibia and patella. He'll likely be out for the '07-'08 season if he ever plays again.

Yeah, I heard today that this is the worst possible knee injury and that he would be out for 8-12 months (officially) but some were saying they would be surprised if he played again next season if at all.

The worst injury ever has to be David Busst's leg injury. His playing career came to an end on April 8, 1996 for Coventry, against Manchester United. Two minutes into the match, Busst collided with United players Denis Irwin and Brian McClair, resulting in extensive fractures to both the tibia and fibula of his right leg. The match had to be delayed for 15 minutes while the blood was cleaned off the pitch. It is reputed that Manchester United's goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel vomited on the pitch upon seeing the injury and had to have counselling afterwards, along with a number of other players. It is commonly regarded as the worst single injury ever witnessed in the Premiership's history, made even more tragic because Busst was in the running for an England squad call-up at the time.
Busst's injuries were so bad that he at one point ran the risk of having his leg amputated. Despite having 26 operations, Busst remained a member of the Coventry squad but never played again and retired from the game following advice from his doctors on 6 November 1996 at the age of 29.

I know man, my knee hurts just looking at it. I've had some injuries that are pretty painful but I can't even imagine how any of these guys feel. !+)
