I've done surgeries on Lefort Fractures, the area he was touching (maxilla) and the concussion are red flags for a fracture to the maxilla.
From what I saw I don't think it's a LeFort fracture. I didn't see any nasal bleeding from the septal fracture and palatal separation that accompanies a LeFort I. Although not impossible, lateral head/face impacts usually don't cause LeFort fractures. From the way it was holding a towel to his lower jaw while being carted off, I thought it was more likely a mandible fracture. Either way, tough injury that will likely require surgery (if indeed a fracture).
Blizzuntz, what exactly is your job title? Want to give you the benefit of the doubt, but when I first saw your post about LeFort Fx, I kinda wanted to call BS.
