A charity soccer match claimed two celebrity casualties over the weekend, with one player being taken off the field on a stretcher, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Will Ferrell and television chef Gordon Ramsay were injured during the all-star soccer match on Sunday, the story reports. Ramsay was carried from the charity match on a stretcher, while Ferrell limped off the field with a leg injury.

Ramsay was injured after a tackle by former pro player Teddy Sheringham, while Ferrell hurt his leg in the second half. The status of Ferrell’s injury wasn’t known, the piece notes.

"Thx 4 all the messages. Out of hospital after receiving amazing care from medics at ground & hospital. Bit sore but fine," Ramsay wrote via Twitter on Monday.

The Soccer Aid match, held at Manchester United’s Old Trafford, raised more than $6.4 million for UNICEF.
