If someone is a football player on either the collegiate or professional level, chances are they may have to deal with some particularly nasty injuries at some point. In the case of Arkansas Razorbacks wide receiver Jared Cornelius not only did he deal with a rough injury, but also handled it almost perfectly.
In the video below, one can see that Cornelius clearly has a broken arm. Does he fall to the ground and writhe in pain? No. Does he sprint to the trainer’s table? No.
Rather, he simply looks at his arm, jogs off, and that’s the end of that.
Be forewarned, the video below is pretty graphic.

Arkansas would go on to lose to Texas Tech 35-24, but Cornelius deserves his due credit. Regardless of circumstance, he handled his battle wound like a fine soldier and though he’s probably out for the rest of the season, he can walk away from 2015 saying he left it all on the field.
Arkansas will look to improve to 2-2 next weekend when the SEC rival Texas A&M Aggies pay a visit to Fayetteville.
