Report: Gory injury suffered by Jets defenseman Zach Redmond UPDATED

By Allan Muir

UPDATE: Redmond underwent a three-hour operation to repair a deep cut into the right femoral artery. He is said to be resting comfortably at a Raleigh-area hospital.

Redmond was wearing Kevlar socks at the time of the accident, but the skate cut into his leg above them.
