It’s not clear at all what happened, but the PLL did issue a statement announcing that “both players have been suspended indefinitely pending further investigations by the PLL Discipline and Conduct Committee.”

In a video floating around Twitter, Gaudet appears to be missing a sizable chunk of his middle finger. Take a look at a screenshot below.

The video has since been made private.

While I don’t know much about lacrosse, I do know plenty about disgusting injuries, and getting your finger allegedly bitten off is about as gross as it gets.

In fact, I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a more disgusting picture on the internet today. It’s simply brutal.

We’ll see how this all shakes out, but the fact both players are already suspended is a great indication whatever happened was incredibly serious.

What an absolutely strange and bizarre situation.
