Who needs an osteologist? (Installment 48)

Bioarchaeologist Kori Filipek noticed this amazing graphic on the Runner's World Facebook page this week:

And the original graphic, via Twitter:

I imagine it would take quite a while for a runner to get back on the road with a knee injury that involved.... a replacement of his leg bones with the elbow joint of a kid? 

There are a bunch of comments on the post from people who also noticed the error, but as of today, Runner's World has not fixed it. (If you click through, though, that graphic does not appear in the article.)

If you want to learn more about osteology, Kori is involved with Transylvania Bioarchaeology, which seems to have an amazing field school every summer!
