During Sunday night’s matchup between the Philadelphia Stars and Pittsburgh Maulers, one player had a tooth smashed out of his mouth during a massive hit.
Maulers wide receiver Isiah Hennie was carrying the ball up the left sideline when he went helmet-to-helmet with Stars safety Cody Brown.
We tend to forget NFL players aren’t the only ones dealing punishment on the gridiron. This sport, like Hockey, is a man’s game. This ain’t soccer.
That can’t feel good.
No numbing cream or laughing gas in sight. And for those us of that dealt with cheap parents that tied our choppers to the door with a string, this feeling hits home.
Not a perfect comparison, but losing teeth in any other way other than pushing one back and forth with your tongue until it falls out naturally, stinks. The USFL Twitter page shared more footage soon after, which revealed Isiah Hennie lost a wisdom tooth in the exchange. At least that one had to come out anyway?
We aren’t sure what type of dental insurance the USFL offers — hopefully, he’s got some coverage because this won’t be cheap. Poor guy.
