Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald suffered one of the worst injuries of the year on Thursday night, as Fitzgerald was seen with a very visible break in one of his legs.
Once taken back to the locker room, Fitzgerald sent out a message thanking the fans for their support after he had to be carted off of the field.
I’ll be back stronger and better than ever! I love all my Hailstate fam and all I want right now is for all of y’all to ring your bells as loud as you can and support this team to a huge egg bowl win! #HaiIState
Fitzgerald suffered the injury in the first quarter of the annual Egg Bowl game between Mississippi State and Ole Miss.
Warning: graphic injury
You never want to see injuries, but that often goes double in a big rivalry game such as this one. Fitzgerald seemed content while he was being carted off the field, but the raucous atmosphere that was in Davis-Wade Stadium before the injury clearly vanished after Fitzgerald was taken to the locker room.
We wish the quarterback the best in his recovery.
