Freak injuries

Over the last couple of weeks, we've seen some pretty ghastly sports injuries. First there was the NHL's Richard Zednik, who nearly died after his neck was slashed open by a teammate's skate.

Now, there is Eduardo da Silva of Arsenal and Croatia. The Gunners' striker suffered a double break (leg and ankle) after Birmingham's Martin Taylor viscously challenged Eduardo in a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

Eduardo's gone for the rest of the season. He's done for the summer too - no Euro 2008. When he comes back is unknown, if he is ever able to step onto a soccer field again.

He hard surgery on his leg and is recuperating.

Don't expect for Eduard to be trolling for pictures of the incident. He told reporters that he doesn't want to see pictures of it anywhere. At least the good thing for him is that he doesn't remember much from the incident.

"All I remember is when I fell, I looked down at my foot and it had turned the other way. The rest is just a blank."

Taylor should be banned until Eduardo comes back. If Eduardo can never make a living on the pitch again, then neither should Taylor.
