The fans of actor Jeremy Renner are concerned about him losing his leg after he suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” and was admitted to the ICU following orthopedic surgery.
The Marvel actor, who is famous for playing the character of Hawkeye in the MCU, was at his ranch in Lake Tahoe, Nevada when he was met with an accident. He was clearing his driveway of snow when his PistenBully snowcat ran over his legs, causing serious blood loss.

Renner’s publicist, Samantha Mast, later said in a statement, “Jeremy is making positive progress and is awake, talking and in good spirits,” Mast said a new statement released Tuesday evening. “He remains in ICU in critical but stable condition. He is overwhelmed by the showing of love and support. The family asks for your continued thoughts while he heals with his close loved ones.”
Although the 51-year-old shared a picture of himself from his hospital bed, thanking his fans for all the love and support they had shown him, the fans expressed their worries about his condition, speculating on the possibility of his leg getting amputated.

“The Jeremy Renner reports keep getting worse. At this point I’m trying to figure out if there’ll be amputation involved, if he has permanent damage to his legs and can’t walk. Just hoping he makes a full recovery and reports are just overzealous,” one of the fans tweeted.
Another user wrote, “To have a second surgery for a traumatic injury is not good. Stabilization of spine, surgery to stop brain swelling, possibly an amputation (or stabilization of a very very bad break with all the fun metal stuff) seem the most likely. My heart goes to Jeremy Renner and his family.”

One more wrote, “The per SQ in weight loading of the tread is lower than a wheel, less contact pressure! A tire with 1/4 of the weight of vehicle going over a leg makes jelly and total crush, likely amputation A track is less psi.”
A Twitter user commented, “Blunt Chest Trauma & Orthopedic Injuries are extremely very serious! We need to pray for Jeremy Renner as he could lose his leg or be stuck to a respirator for the rest of his life! Let’s all pray for Hawkeye so that his surgeon will heal his injuries to start physical therapy!” One more stated, “I feel like we’re all braced for the news that Jeremy Renner is going to lose that leg.”
