This is one of the worst injuries a person — or furry creature — can get on a football field.
“Bully,” the mascot for the Mississippi State Bulldogs, was knocked out of commission Thursday night when a wayward ESPN TV cart drilled the costumed critter. The student in the mascot suit suffered a compound fracture in the accident and had to have surgery on the injury that night, according to SB Nation. For those who don’t remember health class, a compound fracture is when the bone goes through the skin. That’s a nasty injury.
Mississippi State went on to beat Ole Miss in overtime, but at least one Bulldog won’t remember this Thanksgiving win fondly.
Check out photos of the student being treated below.
