    Check the vid you out. stop at .37 to see the xray of the broken leg. you be the judge of it.
    stop making opinions before knowing the facts.
    As I said earlier, it is the fibula which was broken and broken in the middle of the bone. Here is some info about the fibula so you can know that facts as well as me. Yes, it would be painful but also not that serious.

    The long thin outer bone of the lower leg of four- and two-legged vertebrates, including humans. The fibula takes no part in the articulation at the knee joint, but below, it forms the lateral malleolus of the ankle joint. It takes no part in the transmission of body weight. The fibula has an expanded upper end, a shaft, and a lower end.

    The upper end, or head, is surmounted by a styloid process. It possesses an articular surface for articulation with the lateral condyle of the tibia.

    The shaft of the fibula is long and slender, and its shape is subject to considerable variation. Typically, its has four borders and four surfaces. The anterior surface is very narrow in its upper part, where the anterior and medial borders run close together or may become confluent. The medial or interosseous border gives attachment to the interosseous membrane.

    The lower end of the fibula forms the triangular lateral malleolus, which is subcutaneous. On the medial surface of the lateral malleolus is a triangular articular facet for articulation with the lateral aspect of the talus. Below and behind the articular facet is depression called the malleolar fossa.

    The main function of the fibula is to provide an attachment for muscles. It provides little supportive strength to the lower leg, which is why pieces of bone can safely be taken from it for grafting elsewhere in the body.


    Fractures of the fibula

    The fibula is one of the most commonly broken bones. Fracture of the fibula just above the ankle may occur with a severe ankle sprain as a result of a violent twisting movement. Pott's fracture is fracture of the fibula just above the ankle combined with dislocation of the ankle and sometimes with fracture of the tibia.

    A suspected fracture of the fibula is X-rayed to confirm the diagnosis. In some cases the lower leg is immobilized in a plaster cast to allow the bone to heal. If the fracture occurs in the middle portion of the fibula, immobilization may not be needed. If the fracture is severe (especially if it is accompanied by dislocation of the ankle), surgery may be necessary to fasten the broken pieces of bone with metal pins.

    • But we're talking about a 15 year old kid playing the rest of the game and taking hits. That is some serious pain, not to mention it is possible that he could have died from it

        Could have died from it??? Other high school kids have played with broken bones too, he was not the first. I agree with you guys that it probably was painful, but like the coach in the video says, they thought it was a charlie horse so how bad could it really have been? I tried to find how many games he missed due to it and I couldn't find any info, how about you?

          If bone marrow gets into your blood stream you, depending on where it goes you can suffer a heart attack or a stroke. I don't doubt that other high school kids have played with broken bones but a broken leg is completely different. If he had gotten hit on that leg on one play his bone likely would have bent out of his skin

          • Paige: Tebow's future hinges on starting

            Wow, a Woody Paige article that isn't slamming Orton...

            At Dove Valley, one of the gaggle of new radio show gabbers, apparently fresh from his turn with a pail and a shovel for Ringling Bros., provided us with this assay: "The Broncos will win eight games and won't get to the playoffs. No way Tebow is the starter, but he will be quarterback on third-and-short, fourth-and-1 and close to the end zone."

            Alas, that contradictory contention is widely shared.

            If one truly believes that the Broncos won't reach the postseason in 2010, what would be the purpose of starting a lame-duck quarterback? And if one genuinely believes Tim Tebow shouldn't be a full-time quarterback, why would he be placed in that position in the most critical offensive situations — third and fourth downs and inside the 10-yard line?

            The assertions are absolutely irrational.

            If the Broncos are going nowhere this season with Kyle Orton, why doesn't Tim Tebow start at quarterback? If the Broncos trust Tebow more than Orton on third-and-2 and fourth-and-goal, why wouldn't Tebow also be in the game on first-and-10 and second-and-5?

            Should the Broncos start Orton, Tebow or Brady Quinn? That is the fundamental question of training camp.

            Here is a statement of fact:

            Three first-round quarterback picks in the past two drafts started at least 15 games in their rookie seasons. Their teams achieved playoff spots. In 2008, with rookie Joe Flacco at quarterback, the Ravens finished 11-5 as a wild-card team — after they were 5-11 and last in the division the year before. Matt Ryan went 11-5 in '08 and lifted the Falcons to a wild card, following Atlanta's 4-12, last-place disaster in '07. The Jets, with Brett Favre as quarterback in '08, were 9-7 but failed to earn a playoff spot. With rookie Mark Sanchez, the Jets also compiled a 9-7 record but got to the AFC championship.

            Two other quarterbacks — Matthew Stafford and Josh Freeman — also were drafted in the first round last year. Stafford's record was 2-8, Freeman 3-6.

            Twenty-six quarterbacks were chosen in the first round of drafts from 2000-09. Seven began their rookie seasons as starters. Nineteen started at some point during the season (JaMarcus Russell for one game in '07 for the Raiders). Six helped their teams get to the playoffs.

            (Orton was a fourth-round pick by the Bears in 2005. He started the first 14 games, was benched for the 15th and returned for the final, then was replaced again by Rex Grossman before the playoffs. Orton was 10-5 overall.)

            (Jay Cutler was drafted in the first round by the Broncos in 2006. He took over as starter for the final five games, and the Broncos went 2-3, falling short of the playoffs.)

            Out of the 2000s, Cutler has been considered a first-round failure so far, as have Russell (cut), Grossman (despite starting in the Super Bowl), Joey Harrington, David Carr, Patrick Ramsey, Kyle Boller, J.P. Losman, Matt Leinart, Alex Smith (although the last two are expected to start this year) and Quinn.

            The successes, to different extents, have included Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Carson Palmer and Philip Rivers. Then there are Vince Young, Byron Leftwich, Chad Pennington and Michael Vick, who've experienced serious highs and definite lows.

            Peyton Manning and brother Eli were No. 1 picks overall (1998 and 2004). Peyton started his first game and was 3-13 his opening season, 13-3 the next; Eli started in the ninth game and was 1-6, then 11-5 in 2005. Both have won Super Bowls since.

            Obviously, Peyton is prejudiced about rookies starting. "I think the sooner you do it, the better off you're going to be in the long run. Eli told me what he learned in those (starts) far outweighed what he learned on the sideline," Manning told The Sporting News.

            At his intriguing website Advance NFL Stats, Brian Burke, an amateur football analyst who has a degree in aerospace engineering, extensively studied the recent history of rookie quarterback starters. His conclusion: "It appears that QBs with more rookie starts tend to enjoy greater career success. . . . There is no reason for a coach to arbitrarily keep a rookie QB on the bench."

            John Elway struggled his rookie season, starting the first five (2-3) and five of the final six regular-season games (2-3). He was 13-3 as a starter the following year. "Starting as a rookie speeded up my learning process," Elway said recently.

            Tom Brady didn't start a game, and appeared briefly in one, his rookie season for the Patriots (2000), and became the starter in the third game of Josh McDaniels' first season with the team (as a personnel assistant) in 2001. His record was 14-3 with a Super Bowl victory.

            What now with the Broncos? Which quarterback gives the Broncos their best chance at the playoffs? Orton? Tebow? Both playing in games? Neither? Quinn? None?

            Despite what experts claim, that decision has not been made before the official grand opening of camp today.
            "That's a crap question."

                • Obviously I can't predict the future...
                  but I fully expect Tebow to be starting before this season ends...

                  I seriously doubt Orton will make it far before being injured for one thing.

                  Tebow's contract and him being the "future" is another.

                  If Tebow does not start at some point this season... I'll be thrilled...
                  because that will mean the Broncos will have been very succesful and we are going to the playoffs.

                  If that does not happen... I can not imagine McD NOT getting Tebow into the games for crucial experience preparing him for 2011 and on.

                    Is he? A lot of this was really sound. More so than some of the arguments people make on these boards. He never said starting Tebow will help win now. He just said it could be good for his future as our QB. I'm not saying he is right but he's far from an idiot.

                    • Mcdaniels isn't gonna let Tebow ride the bench beacause he's a rookie and needs time to develop, He's gonna let him ride the bench only because he has a better option. If Tebow can outplay Orton and Quinn and show Mcdaniels something he starts it's as simple as that. It's the way it should be

                        That is speaking about starting the first game.
                        The season is long... the outcomes of games are varied.

                        I see you are an Orton fan. I like him as a person.
                        Tremendous drive and charactor and work ethic.

                        That said... I sincerely doubt he will go a whole season injury free.
                        At that point, depending on our position, ie, wins and losses...

                        Mcd Will have to cut bait and I expect begin the Tebow era.

                        With that huge contract and the huge expectations... I can't see Quinn getting the nod.

                        • I don't think its necessarily a bad thing to have a quarterback sit the likes of Rodgers, Rivers, and even Palmer have been quite successful albeit they don't have any rings but they have developed into some of the top quarterbacks as well.

                          • When Tebow gives us a better chance to win than either Orton or Quinn, that is when he will be our starter. Some QB's have had success sitting for a year, and some have had success starting right away so I don't think there's one way that is better than the other.

                              And if the Broncos have no chance at the playoffs this year, Tebow should start. But the Broncos are not the St. Louis Rams. We barely missed the playoffs the last two seasons and have a very good chance of making them this season. Starting Tebow, we don't, if he's not the best QB on the roster.

                              • Tebow: QB Busts - the QB or the team?

                                Some people say Tebow will be a bust, some say he'll be great.

                                But how much is really in Tebow's hands? All he can do is learn the systems, work hard to be good in them, and play with spirit. I think he will do that, but no matter how well he does that, it's pretty much out of his hands whether he is a bust.

                                Put the best QB in a bad offense, and he can only make it slightly better. If Peyton Manning had gone to the Lions, he'd have a very different reputation now. He might not even be playing with the Lions. What seems to matter more than the QB himself is the team: Specifically, whether they are a good team; a good offense; have good Xs and Os; whether they have stability or transition in their coaches and personnel; the quality of their O-line; the quality of their receiving corps; the quality of their running game, and the quality of their defense.

                                RECENT QB "BUSTS" AND THE TEAMS THAT DRAFTED THEM
                                • Alex Smith... San Francisco... Bad team, in transition, weak O-line, weak R-corps
                                • Vince Young... Tennessee... Below average team, transition, weak R-corps
                                • JaMarcus Russell... Oakland... Bad team, transition, weak R-corps
                                • Joey Harrington... Detroit... Bad team, transition, weak O-line, weak run game
                                • Ryan Leaf... San Diego... Bad team, transition, weak O-line, weak R-corps
                                • Brady Quinn... Cleveland... Bad team, transition, weak R-corps
                                • Drew Stanton... Detroit... Bad team, transition, weak O-line, weak run game
                                • Kellen Clemens... NYJets... Bad team, transition
                                • Brodie Croyle... KC... Bad team, transition, weak O-line
                                • Jason Campbell... Washington... Bad offense, transition, weak O-line


                                RECENT "SUCCESSES":
                                • Matt Ryan... Atlanta... strong run game, strong WR-corps, new coaches brought in good system
                                • Joe Flacco... Baltimore... Strong run game, strong O-line, average WR-corps, strong defense
                                • Chad Henne... Miami... Playoff team, strong O-line, decent run game, strong defense
