Cleveland outfielder Josh Naylor was carted off the field following a brutal collision and an apparent lower leg injury suffered in the fourth inning of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Twins.

Naylor was sprinting in to shallow right field for a fly ball as second baseman Ernie Clement was running to the outfield, looking for the ball over his back. The two collided, and as Naylor came down it appeared that he hurt his ankle and/or lower leg after it was caught underneath him in what looked like a brutal injury.

Naylor immediately writhed in pain and was still doing so as he was carted off the field with his leg immobilized.
