Hey, get that thing out of here; Houston WR hits cart, breaks leg

SHARE Hey, get that thing out of here; Houston WR hits cart, breaks leg

Here at Sports Pros(e), we’re giant fans of common sense. That’s why the following clip is so disturbing.

In last night’s Houston-Marshall football game, Cougar wide receiver Patrick Edwards tried to run down a lob in the end zone. The results were disastrous.

What in the heck is that equipment cart doing there? Edwards fractured his leg, ending what had been a stellar freshman campaign.

To their credit, those in the Houston camp seem to be keeping their emotions in check.

Cougars’ coach Kevin Sumlin said that while he had his opinions on the subject, he would offer no comment on such a dangerous situation. University of Houston athletics director Dave Maggard said he will pursue the subject with Marshall officials. It was duly noted and I think we’ll save the conversation for another day, Maggard said. I don’t think there is any question that it is a problem. We all noticed it, and we want to find out why something like that would occur. It was a serious injury, no question about it.
