The Tennessee Titans could not pull off a comeback victory against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, but that was far from the most important event of the weekend for them. Major concerns arose when quarterback Ryan Tannehill was carted off the field with an apparent leg/foot injury during the first quarter of Sunday's clash.

Miraculously, Tannehill returned in the second quarter to finish off the game. He did, however, reveal some frightening details of his injury after the loss.

"Whatever the top rating on the pain scale, it was that," said Tannehill. "I was in a lot of pain but was able to get back out there and play."

Below is a close-up video of the tackle that sent Tannehill into the locker room on a cart, explaining why the gunslinger went down in so much pain. This angle shows gruesome footage of Tannehill's ankle getting rolled over and shows just how resilient he was for getting back on the field so quickly to finish the remainder of the contest.

Tannehill will try to recover in time for Tennessee's Week 16 divisional tilt against the Houston Texans. The Titans are currently favored by 7 points at home on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
