Thursday's Egg Bowl between Ole Miss and Mississippi State got off to a horrible start when Mississippi State's quarterback Nick Fitzgerald suffered a dislocated ankle injury.
The quarterback went down with just under 10 minutes left in the first quarter.
Fitzgerald was carted off and while he was smiling as he left, the injury was extremely ugly.
You can watch the injury here, but be warned that the video is extremely graphic.
Or if you don't want to see the whole video, here's a photo of Fitzgerald going down.
True freshman Keytaon Thompson took his place in the pocket following the injury.
Fitzgerald has thrown for 1,770 yards and 15 touchdowns this season.
Ole Miss went on to win the Egg Bowl, 31–28.
