Adarius Glanton, a Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker, suffered a severe leg injury during a game with the Atlanta Falcons Monday evening.
During a play, Glanton and his fellow teammate, Robert Ayers, collided while they were attempting to take down Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.
Reportedly, Glanton suffered a left tibia & fibula fracture to his left leg and will need surgery. He was immediately hauled off the field, and isn’t expected to be able to play again until next year.
Ayers was injured in the pileup as well.
The Falcons won the game Monday night, 24-21.

Adarius Glanton down on the field after collision in backfield. Cart out for him with what looks to be a serious leg injury.
