The flag is an actual decal off his helmet. Yes, that is a cast. He broke his right wrist the second day of 2 a days and played the season with the cast. Actually practiced the day he got the cast. During the season he broke the other wrist but we did not know until after December. He spent 6 weeks in a cast on the left wrist, ended up having surgery & a screw inserted & 6 more weeks of ultrasound therapy because it did not heal. He hurt it again in practice in college & was red-shirted for the year. He is still having problems & waiting for appoinment to have an MRI. His college football career may be over.
