Redskins lineman Clyde Shugart (1939-44)

EXCERPT: In December 1999, Clyde Shugart was hunting in the countryside in southern Pennsylvania when he met an unexpected impediment. His foot got caught in the ground, and he tripped. While trying to prevent damage to a rifle in one hand and a telescope in the other, he lost his balance and fell, slamming his mouth into a large rock. The collision jarred four teeth from him. Bleeding profusely, he was taken by a friend to a hospital in Cumberland, Md., where he underwent surgery. Another two teeth beyond repair were removed. It’s ironic that Shugart never lost any teeth in the NFL, an injury so prevalent in the days when he competed. The lineman played for the Redskins from 1939 to 1944, an era when almost everyone played without facemasks on their leather helmets.
