Scary collision at Superdome: NFL sideline official suffers broken leg after collision with Alvin Kamara

In a startling incident during Sunday's game between the New Orleans Saints and the Detroit Lions, a sideline official sustained an apparent broken leg after a collision with Saints' running back Alvin Kamara. The unfortunate play unfolded in the second quarter at the Superdome in New Orleans.

As Kamara ran left and was pushed out of bounds, he inadvertently crashed into the leg of the official on the sideline. Despite the official's attempt to evade the collision, he couldn't avoid the impact, resulting in an agonizing scene.

A camera shot captured the worker's leg at an awkward angle as he fell to the ground.

The officer was attended to quickly

The game was halted to provide immediate medical attention to the injured official. Kamara briefly checked on the man, but play eventually resumed.

The official, believed to be part of the chain crew, was later carted off the field on a stretcher. Medical staff worked diligently on the injured man, eventually placing an air cast around his leg. Play resumed after he was loaded onto the stretcher.

In an unfortunate turn of events, this collision serves as a stark reminder of the risks and unpredictability on an NFL field, highlighting the vulnerability of even those on the sidelines.

But it was a great game for Kamara regardless

The Lions went on to secure a 33-28 victory, advancing to 10-3 on the season while the Saints dropped to 5-7.

Despite the unsettling incident, Kamara had a noteworthy performance, accumulating 109 all-purpose yards and scoring two touchdowns on 20 touches during the game.

The running back tied the franchise record of 52 rushing touchdowns, held until today by his old friend Mark Ingram II. Later, Kamara came within a yard of breaking the record with his 53rd touchdown, but the achievement will have to be left for next week.
