In marquee matchups, players often have to be ready to sacrifice everything to come out with the victory. On Saturday against the Clemson Tigers, Texas A&M receiver Kendrick Rogers risked one of his legs to make an incredible catch.
Trailing by eight points in the fourth quarter, Rogers came sprinting back to help his quarterback then made a leaping grab.
As soon as his legs came down, a Tigers’ defensive back drilled him in the legs, which whipped Rogers’ entire body around the defender with his leg still pinned.

While he was ruled down, football fans on Twitter were stunned at Rogers’ ability to survive the hit and then take off and try and run for even more yards.

What a catch by Kendrick Rogers. I thought his leg had snapped in half and he got up and kept going.

Forget the catch, how did Kendrick Rogers not break his leg on that catch?!?!
