(Newser) – Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware has one thing in common with the rest of America: He never wants to see video of the bone-snapping injury he suffered on the court Sunday. "I don't plan on seeing the video," he tells CNN. "I honestly never want to see the video. It puts me in a mental state that I don't want to be." Ware called the injury "God's plan," and vowed to play basketball again.

The Courier-Journal of Louisville, meanwhile, talks to teammate Luke Hancock, who went to Ware immediately after the injury—even as others recoiled in horror—then held his hand and said a prayer. “I wouldn’t want to be alone in that situation, and I don’t think he wanted to be alone,” says Hancock. “I just thought if I could talk to him and tell him he’ll be all right, it might help.” It did. "Luke is a great guy," says Ware.

There's a Croatian soccer player who suffered a compound fracture and ankle dislocation so grotesque he nearly lost his foot. Hopefully this kid stays positive and works hard, because today's medicine can get him back if he wants it bad enough. Best of luck to him.
