Former FSU star playing through one of the worst injuries imaginable


Playing kicker in the NFL and keeping that job for almost a decade or more. That's what former Florida State star Graham Gano has been able to do since 2009 and that's thanks to his 80 percent-plus kicking percentage. He started with the Washington Redskins until he was released for Billy Cundiff and was then signed by the Carolina Panthers in 2012 where he still plays.

Gano is currently 22-of-26 on his field goals this year and it looks like he kicked some of those despite a broken bone in his plant foot. Gano still has three games left in the season and it sounds like his injury is something he intends to play through, according to Jourdan Rodrigue from the Charlotte Observer.

The injury occurred this past weekend. The seventh-year kicker grimaced after a kickoff on Sunday during the 28-16 victory over the Chargers, though he remained in the game and converted all four field goal attempts. Who said kickers are the weakest players on the team?
