We present the first report of proximal rectus femoris avulsion injury in kickers and the outcome after nonoperative treatment. Since it is a rarely reported injury, more cases would be helpful to confirm our findings. However, based on our experience with 2 NFL kickers, we believe rapid recovery is possible without surgical intervention.
