Conner Shaw is filling in this week at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns and he is going to be sore tomorrow after taking a vicious hit that literally sent him flying.
With the score tied in the third quarter, Shaw stepped up to hit a receiver on a long catch-and-run pass to get the Browns inside the 5-yard-line. But Shaw was shaken up on the play.
A look back shows Shaw getting drilled by C.J. Mosley of the Ravens just as Shaw threw the ball.
Replays showed that Shaw took a direct hit to the mid-section on the throw and was tossed backwards nearly three yards in the air.
An aerial view showed that Shaw was on the 47-yard-line when he was hit and ended up way back at the 43-yard-line and closer to the sideline meaning he was knocked backwards more than four yards.
Shaw was down on the turf for a few moments, but eventually got up and stayed in the game.
Playing time is rare for backup quarterbacks and they will do almost anything to stay in a game. But Shaw is going to feel this one tomorrow.
