Michigan State hero suffered gruesome injury after game-winning touchdown

What an awful way for a player to get injured.

UPDATE: Jalen Watts-Jackson, a redshirt freshman safety, is out for the year after having surgery to repair a fractured hip.


You have probably seen the video by now: Michigan State beat their in-state rival Michigan on a miracle fumble return for a touchdown. However, not everything was a miracle for the Spartans, as they have lost their game-winning hero for the rest of the season.

Jalen Watts-Jackson scored the game-winning touchdown, but it looks like he was injured in the celebration. After the score, Watts-Jackson fell to the ground while his teammates piled on him. Once the celebrating was over, Watts-Jackson was motionless on the ground and appeared to be in a lot of pain afterwards.
