Ravens Sideline Photographer Suffers Torn Achilles After Getting Knocked Down, Finishes Game in Boot (GIFs)

Step aside Kobe Bryant, because Baltimore Ravens team photographer Bill Hoffman absolutely shattered the recovery time for a torn Achilles on Sunday afternoon.

The sideline photographer suffered the gruesome injury after Baltimore wide receiver Tandon Moss barreled into him while snagging a Joe Flacco pass out of bounds near the end zone. A Green Bay defender pushed Moss, leading him to tumble into Hoffman on the play, but the professional handled the injury like a champ — a dedicated, hardcore and tough one at that.

Instead of calling it a day, Hoffman returned to the sidelines in a boot, according to the team’s official Twitter account, and he continued to photograph the remainder of the game.

Check out the play below, with a hat tip to Bleacher Report.
