The former St George, Penrith, Cronulla and South Sydney player was taking part in arm wrestling contest with fellow former NRL star Wendell Sailor.
Ross’ arm snapped backwards just seconds into the contest, leaving Ross in a mountain of pain.
According to the Fox Sports, it is believed Ross suffered a broken humerus, while there are also fears the 35-year-old had torn his bicep muscle.
Footy Show host Paul Vautin quickly cut to an ad break, before co-host Erin Molan informed viewers after the break that Ross had been taken to hospital for treatment.
Sailor took to Twitter to apologise to his injured opponent, while Ross lived up to his good guy reputation with this reply:
Wasn't anyone's fault mate. @NRLFootyShow were amazing with their help and care last night. https://t.co/7tHwM1lj7Y
