Nasty Sports Injuries: Steve Zakuani’s Shattered Leg

Seattle Sounders FC winger Steve Zakuani was in the ER tonight after a cynical and disgusting challenge from the Colorado Rapids’ Brian Mullan. Zakuani’s right leg snapped so loudly you could hear it live on the TV broadcast. The video is after the jump for the non-squeamish folk.

Mullan needs at least a 10 match ban for that. Totally thuggish and you can see why he leads the team in fouls committed. That’s worse than the Joe Theismann leg break. Luckily this is the “sanitized” version because the live broadcast featured several up-close replays of this terrible terrible leg break.

May Zakuani have a successful recovery from this and resume his playing career as soon as possible. Wow. That was grotesque.
