We all know that football is a tough sport, where players hardly ever take to the field feeling 100% and put their bodies on the line every single Sunday.

But sometimes players go above and beyond the call of duty out on the gridiron, and Dallas Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones certainly did that on Saturday night.

During the game against the New York Jets, which Dallas would eventually lose, Jones made a routine tackle on Jets WR Quincy Enunwa - which somehow left the corner with a dislocated knee cap, an incredibly painful injury. Not for Jones, however, as the rookie dealt with it insanely quickly. (Scroll to see the video)

Jones’ dislocated left knee was painfully noticeable to viewers at home. Instead of panicking like a mere mortal he quickly popped it back into place. The rookie then continued playing and just got on with the game like nothing had happened!

After the game, Jones revealed that he had never had something like that happen to him before but seemed to shrug it off fairly easily.

“It just felt stuck for a little bit. I just straightened it out and it felt good,” he said in the postgame locker room, via ESPN. “I didn’t notice it was over to the side. I felt it stuck a little bit, so I just slowly straightened it and it just felt good from there.”
