Taking photos isn’t just fun and games. Did you know the job comes with a risk of serious injury? Just ask Ravens team photographer Phil Hoffman.
During Sunday’s game at M&T Bank Stadium, Hoffman was standing on the sidelines without a care in the world. Then, disaster struck! Wide receiver Tandon Doss tried to pull down a pass from QB Joe Flacco in the corner of the end zone. He pulled down the ball but came down out of bounds … and right into Hoffman’s knee.
Holy cow. Take a look at that collision. Looked ugly, right? That’s because it was. Hoffman suffered a torn Achilles tendon, but get this: He came back and finished the game!
Ravens photographer Phil Hoffman tore his achilles when Doss crashed him on the sidelines earlier. He’s now in a boot back working the game.
