The entire college football world will be praying for Marcus Lattimore.

The South Carolina running back, who tore an ACL last year and battled all the way back, suffered an injury that looked as ugly as any we've ever seen.

Lattimore, considered one of if not the top running back for next year's NFL Draft had he decided to come out a year early, was running to his left. Tennessee defensive back Eric Gordon tackled him low, and Lattimore's leg collapsed. When he went down, replays showed what clearly looked like a dislocation in his leg. It was a terrible injury that will be remembered alongside Joe Theismann, Napoleon McCallum, Tyrone Prothro and many other grisly injuries that serve as a reminder how violent football can be.

Pretty brutal. He'd be lucky if it's just the McGahee injury because those were all ligaments. IMO that one today looked like the Shaun Livingston injury with the leg snapping and the guy just tearing and dislocating everything. If it's the latter he's screwed and there's no way in hell he'd be ready for the combine, it took Livingston over a year before he was even cleared to step on a court and he was never able to plant his foot for remotely anything ever again.
