According to raising the bar, it was eaten by a bullsquid.

In the current story, it was indeed a bullsquid that tore off his leg. However, it was originally intended to be a hostile entity that was cut from the game called a particle storm. He said that he made the mistake to study it and it tore off his leg.

Can you please tell me where you got the other bits with the Opposing Force enemies and the specifics on his leg replacement?

It was by mark laidlaw fan fiction he said i dont know if its canon or not but i maid it so technically it might not be the real answer but thats what he said on a special interview on some half life fan website i found looked at the footage and its legit.

I hope mod makers don't spend too much time worrying about whether they're in conflict with Half-Life. If they get something "wrong", we won't change what we decide to do because of it. They can, if they want, show Eli losing his leg to a Bullsquid while helping Kleiner get to safety in Black Mesa; but if I have an opportunity to later show Eli losing his leg while helping kleiner get into City 17, I'll go ahead and do that. I'm not out to spoil the fans' fun!

Perhaps there are many many parallel universes, in each of which Eli loses his leg in an entirely different way.

I guess you're right in some way. I've just never heard the extra bits you mentioned before.

It Is Not Canon Since This Happend After Mark Laidlaw Left Valve And He Said This "This was not a planned story and it is not canon i just made it up on the spot like breengrub anyway thats bassicaly uhh all i have to say oh whait! so dont say this is canon at all and i will probably forget this whole thing *Laughs* so ya take it with a grain of salt"

Barney,Kleiner And Eli All Met One Opposing Force Enemy And That Is Really Likely Like You Have A Chance To See A Military Soldier But Then You Probably Have A Better Chance To See A Black Ops Assasin I Take That Story As Canon But Its Okay If You Dont (:
