Patrick Parton is a freelance photographer who was covering the University of Tennessee-Florida game September 15th, but this photo landed him in the hospital with a broken tibia and fibula. Tennessee linebacker A.J. Johnson, who weighs in at a svelte 240 pounds, knocked Flordia quarterback Jeff Driskel out of bounds — and right into Parton. The players just hopped up and ran back on to the field, but eventually a Florida cheerleader coach saw Parton was in obvious pain and came over to help.
Parton tells BuzzFeed he plans to return to the sidelines as soon as he heals.
