Clemson guard Brevin Galloway will be sidelined for the foreseeable future after suffering a rather unique and unfortunate injury on Thursday.
Galloway revealed on his Instagram Story on Thursday night that he suffered testicular torsion, or torsion, after a workout, which led to emergency surgery.
While there may have been post-surgery medication involved, Galloway sounded rather optimistic about the whole thing while describing the situation.
Warning: Galloway’s video contains a slightly NSFW description of his injury.
“So this morning I went to lift,” Galloway said in his story. “I came back. I took a nap. I woke up from my nap, [and] my balls and my backpack exploded. Now I go to the doctor, I have an operation. Three hours later, my balls are reduced to their normal size.
“I don’t know what happened to my balls. I guess they were trying to be like basketballs, but we made it. Now I’m going to be spoiled for the next 48 hours, and I’ll be back in uniform soon. Go Tigers. I like Clemson.
Clemson coach Brad Brownell saw Galloway’s description and didn’t want to do much about it.
Galloway, however, seemed to have no regrets about his position. On Friday afternoon, he shared that he was already talking with an underwear company about a potential deal.
It’s unclear how long Galloway will be sidelined. Clemson will face Florida State next Saturday before heading to Boston College on Tuesday.
Galloway has averaged 10.6 points and 2.6 assists per game this season, his first with the program after transferring from Boston College, where he landed after a four-year run at Charleston. The No. 24 Clemson currently leads the ACC at 17-4.
