Saints Coach Sean Payton Suffers Broken Leg, Torn MCL On Sideline


It sure is a weird and interesting day in the NFL. So far we’ve seen two coaches get into a shouting match, a starting QB go down with what looked to be a serious shoulder injury and now we have a coach with an injury so serious that if he were a player, he’d be moved to IR.

Saints coach Sean Payton got mixed up in a sideline collision and has reportedly broken his leg and torn his ACL. He was taken to the locker room at halftime for x-rays.

Payton also calls the team’s offensive plays. Payton is staying in the game, however and has moved up to the booth to finish his coaching duties.

We wish Coach a speedy recovery.
