Tennessee fullback David Holbert suffered this violent injury to his left knee during the team's first scrimmage on March 29. According to the Tennessean, Holbert was attempting to catch a pass out of the backfield and was hit by linebacker Rico McCoy.
Last week, Holbert underwent the first of two surgical procedures to correct ligament damage. A second surgery is planned this summer.
Holbert missed all of the 2007 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee early in fall camp.
Alabama receiver Tyrone Prothro suffered a grisly compound fracture (click here to see that injury; again, this comes with a warning) of his left leg in a 2005 victory against Florida. The injury ended his playing career.
