Jurickson Profar has a pretty tough face, apparently.

The Texas Rangers shortstop took a hard cleat to the face during a slide into second base today. It looked fairly brutal.

Profar was clearly in some pain and the spikes to the face left a bloody mark.

Profar made his way to the dugout to get a bandage and then was back in action.

That's still tough to watch even though he was able to return.

The Rangers got the win, too, beating the Astros 4-3.
