Joe Buck, Fox torn for dealing with Donald Parham Jr.’s injury in Chiefs-Chargers

| News Today | News Today

Chargers tight end Donald Parham Jr. was taken off the field on a stretcher early in the first quarter of Los Angeles’ game against Kansas City on Thursday after sustaining what appeared to be a serious injury.

No details of Parham’s injury, which occurred when his head hit the grass, were immediately known. Regardless, the Fox show spent a lot of time zooming in on Parham’s face in the wake of the injury and discussing the injury at length.

Both decisions were met with derision on Twitter, but announcer Joe Buck’s comments about the injury in particular created a firestorm. Parham’s arms were shaking as he was stretched out of the field. Buck said he didn’t want to speculate why, then did just that.

Buck made his comment casually and seemingly out of the blue, without a medical degree or authority of any kind on the subject. As a result, much of Twitter lambasted Buck for his misguided comment.

The Chargers later announced that Parham was in stable condition at a local hospital and get tested. In the third quarter, Buck and Fox had yet to acknowledge or apologize for the longtime broadcaster’s poor choice of words.
