One of my partners this past season tore his achilles tendon---we were admining a FT, he was in the T spot, a long rebound occurred on second FT and he had to sprint back to cover the action. He took one step then crumpled to the floor. This kind of injury is common when you're forced to be completely still for a few minutes , then have to suddenly accelerate and cover that play. There was no replacement and I had to officiate alone the last quarter.
