Ravens photographer suffers torn Achilles, returns to game
A Baltimore Ravens photographer suffered a torn Achilles during the Ravens game on Sunday against Green Bay. The Achilles injury didn't stop the iron man photographer from returning to the game.
If you've ever dreamt about being a sideline photographer at an NFL game, this story might change your mind or give you nightmares or both.
During the Ravens game on Sunday, Baltimore wide receiver Tanden Doss was trying to catch a Joe Flacco pass in the corner of the end zone. Doss caught the pass, but he was out of bounds, so it didn't count.
As he was going for the ball, Doss was pushed by a Packers defender and that push caused Doss to roll into Baltimore Ravens team photographer Phil Hoffman. It looks ugly and that's mainly because it was ugly. Hoffman suffered a torn Achilles on the play.
But wait, our story doesn't end on that sad note, it ends on this incredible note: Hoffmann returned to the game with a boot on his foot. HOFFMAN FINISHED PHOTOGRAPHING THE GAME WITH A TORN ACHILLES.
