NEW YORK GIANTS man Nick Gates had to be carted off FedExField on Thursday night following a gruesome injury to his leg.

The NFL offensive lineman revealed that he 'snapped' his leg after an opponent from the Washington Football Team landed on it with his entire body weight.



He writhed around in pain before doctors rushed on to tend to the stricken star.

But the 25-year-old was in good spirits after the match despite the horror leg break.

NFL Network didn't even show a replay of the incident it was that shocking.

But the player's agent, Jonathan Perzley, took to Instagram to reveal that Gates had even 'laughed' about the injury.

Perzley said: "Not a tougher player on the planet than Gates.

"He laughed on the phone and said 'I snapped that s*** in half.'

He underwent surgery on his leg on Friday, but is expected to miss the rest of the NFL season.
