Clemson's Brevin Galloway out after undergoing emergency testicular torsion surgery
Galloway shared his painful experience on Instagram after undergoing surgery Thursday
Clemson guard Brevin Galloway will be sidelined for the foreseeable future after he sustained a rather unique and unfortunate injury on Thursday.
Galloway revealed on his Instagram story Thursday night that he had sustained testicular torsion, or twist, after a workout, which led to emergency surgery.
While there might've been some post-surgery drugs involved, Galloway appeared to be rather upbeat about the whole thing when describing the situation.
Warning: Galloway’s video contains a mildly NSFW description of his injury.
From Instagram, it sounds like Brevin Galloway will miss at least the next two games for Clemson, for uhhh, a medical reason. I’ll let him explain.

"So this morning I went to lift," Galloway said on his story. "I came back. I took a nap. I woke up from my nap, [and] my balls and my nutsack were exploded. Now, I go to the doctor, I have surgery. 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've made it. Now I'm going to be spoiled for the next 48 hours, and I will be back in a uniform shortly. Go Tigers. I love Clemson.”
Clemson coach Brad Brownell saw Galloway’s description and wanted very little to do with it.
Just got off the phone with Clemson coach Brad Brownell about Brevin Galloway’s latest IG post.
“No comment.” 😅

Galloway, however, seemed to have no regrets about his post. By 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 take on Florida State on Saturday before traveling 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. No. 24 Clemson is currently leading the ACC at 17-4.
