A sideline photographer had an embarrassing moment on TV when he was hit in the nuts during this weekend’s Big Ten game between Wisconsin and Rutgers.
After calling a play in the red zone, Rutgers quarterback Gavin Wimsatt threw a pass that went out of bounds but somehow bounced off the ground and hit the snapper near his groin for a painful injury.
The man grabbed his knee as he went down, but the ball clearly hit him somewhere else.
Either way, that must definitely hurt.
The highlight was the afternoon conversation on social media Saturday, when an account with footage of the accident on X asked if anyone had an injury update on the poor man.
