Everyone on Twitter Was Heartbroken Watching Panthers Linebacker Luke Kuechly Cry After Injury

screen-shot-2016-11-18-at-10-55-04-am-1-e1479484598577-650x414Late in the fourth quarter of the Carolina Panthers’ 23-20 win over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly suffered an injury while making a tackle and was down on the field for several minutes.

At first, it appeared as though Kuechly suffered a leg injury of some sort. Later reporting revealed that the linebacker was being checked for a possible concussion. And Kuechly, who missed three games in 2015 due to concussion, was likely thinking about the potential ramifications of another.

This left him in tears, as he was being examined by the training staff.

Fans watching around the country were taken aback by the sight of Kuechly crying, and many expressed their sorrow via Twitter:
