You don't often see a head coach injuring himself during a game. That's what happened to Georgia State's Shawn Elliott last weekend though.

During his team's 41-7 loss to NC State, Elliott gave what he deemed "an aggressive fist bump" after the Panthers scored their lone touchdown. In doing so, he tore his right bicep.

If that sounds painful, it probably was, though Elliott continued to coach the rest of the game.

He's going to need surgery on his injured bicep though.

Yahoo Sports has examined footage of Elliott on the sideline following the GSU touchdown. You can catch this college football Zapruder film below:

Elliott and the Panthers will play Memphis on the road Friday night.

He might want to ease up on the celebrations for that game.
