Unless you were hiding under a rock Sunday, the chances are you either watched the Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks or you at least heard about it.

While everyone is talking about the interception by the Patriots' Malcolm Butler, one interception that happened earlier in the game is being overshadowed. It's an interception that ended up leading to a graphic injury.

It involved Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane, who intercepted a throw by Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady. It was Lane's first interception of the season. As the Seattle cornerback was tackled by Julian Edelman, his landing was anything but smooth. And his wrist took the brunt of it.

If that's not gross enough for you, watch it happen in slow motion:

Much like the rest of the Super Bowl, viewers immediately reacted on Twitter to the "nasty" and "grossest Super Bowl injury we can remember:"

The NFL later tweeted what many on social media already assumed: Lane wasn't likely to return to the game:
