Addition of -s at the end of verb

Post by aphyllum » Tue Sep 18, 2018 2:19 pm

I have this present tense sentence where I'm unsure about the addition of -s for certain verb.
He fells down right after he gets the kite causing his leg to injure.
If you see from the sentence, how should I put the to injure? Since it is referring to leg which is singular, should I add -s? Or should it be in a past tense form since he gets the injury right after he gets the kite?
