Kicking it after getting kicked

Well, maybe Lawson Vaughn isn't exaclty kickin' it but he's certainly not going to get any playing time anytime soon.

The Law got smacked in the face in rather viscious fashion by Dwayne De Rosario's failed bicycle kick attempt in a match on May 3. Vaughn had to have a pair of surgeries to correct his subsequent broken nose and facial injuries.

Vaughn said the doctor who tended to him had only seen such a complete nasal fracture before on a man who had been kicked by a horse.

Here's a link to the story I wrote on Vaughn. Just hadn't had the chance to post it yet. Nothing against Bobby Burling, who was tossed into the fray and did as well as he could have, but Vaughn can't come back soon enough. Vaughn was just starting to get over his preseason injury concerns when this happened.
