Video: ‘SNL’ skit mocking NFL injuries is scarily accurate

The NFL has been pretty notorious for over-replaying injuries of players in the past and some fans have even confronted the NFL about allowing gruesome injuries being shown over and over again.

Television companies have done a better job of not showing overly gruesome injuries in replays the last few seasons, but that still doesn’t mean it can be spoofed. If it can be spoofed, “Saturday Night Live” is likely going to do just that.

They did so on their most recent episode by doing a mock broadcast of the NFC Divisional Round game between the Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers where the Packers were down to their fourth-string quarterback, Jared Schleff, who was taken after his legs were broken in a nasty hit.

The skit went on to show a group of broadcasters showing the injury over and over again. The show even made a GIF of the hit.

No one should have to experience this kind of pain. But let's watch this GIF over and over. #SNL pic.twitter.com/lyeUFJ9LAJ

The below skit is pretty accurate and makes you wonder about the NFL’s coverage of player injuries.

Yep, that pretty much sums it up.
