Cincinnati Bengals punter Mike Huber suffered such an injury last night after being lit up by Pittsburgh Steelers' linebacker Terence Garvin.
Huber can look forward to enjoying his meals through a straw for a while. Nothing brightens the holiday season like a wired-shut jaw.
Perhaps we should take a brief hiatus from punter jokes. They hardly seem fair at a time like this.
