Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
Does the term 'hunted' make sense in this context:
"Society glorifies sport, but it never shows its HUNTED side, namely the injuries that many athletes suffer for the sake of sport."

No - 'hunted' is the wrong word. To be hunted is to be pursued, chased, persecuted.
Maybe 'negative' or 'the down-side'?
And you don't need a comma before 'but'.

No, we would never use "hunted" in that way.
Where did you find the word? Did someone suggest it to you? It's extremely unexpected.

I might say "...,but society turns a blind eye to the human cost of sport, namely..."

Possibly 'haunted'. Ghosts 'haunt', so the meaning refers to the darker side of sport.

No, that really doesn’t make sense.
Instead of saying hunted side, I would say its bad side, or its negative side. Or something along those lines.
