NFL sideline chain gang official collides with Alvin Kamara and snaps his leg, injury video goes viral
The New Orleans Saints’ running back Alvin Kamara is in the news due to an unfortunate event as the team prepares to play the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Alvin Mentian Kamara plays running back for the National Football League (NFL) New Orleans Saints in the United States of America.
Because NFL players, coaches, and referees are among the many fans, a play that takes someone too close to the sideline could result in a collision because of how rapidly players run.
Lions linebacker Derrick Barnes used his shoulder to knock Saints running back Alvin Kamara out of bounds on a third-and-three. Kamara had taken a Derek Carr speed option flip and was bouncing down the left sideline. Kamara collapsed on the floor, unable to stay upright.
However, he rolled under a chain crew member’s legs in the process. While a sideline security personnel member consoled the injured official and promptly requested medical attention, Kamara was seen on the Fox Sports broadcast staring down at the crew member with a dejected expression. The broadcast was stopped later.
This sideline worker’s leg did not look good after Alvin Kamara ran into him. Prayers up 🙏

Meanwhile, pictures from the incident quickly went viral on social media, inspiring thousands of comments about Kamara’s helpless reaction and how horrific the damage was.
The sideline official’s leg was visibly moved to the side, and cameras focused on Kamara, who was obviously in a lot of pain. To tend to the sideline official, play was halted. His left leg was shown in an air cast as he was carried off the pitch on a stretcher. Immediately following the impact, the crew member was observed rolling about on the ground in agony, his lower left leg bent in a horrifying position.
