Whenever something gives out or snaps, it makes my stomach sick.

A lot of people Wednesday night on Twitter seemed to think he hurt his leg, but that was obviously an ankle injury. I mean, you can see him land on his own ankle and it immediately gave out on him.
Again, it was disgusting.

Hopefully, Avdija bounces back better than ever. You never want to see anyone get hurt, especially in a fashion like he was.
