Toward the end of the first half in yesterdays’ Eagles versus Colts game, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning zipped a pass down the seam to wide receiver Austin Collie.Collie caught the ball, took a couple steps, and lowered his pads, preparing to take a blow from the two safties he knew were about to hit him.
They hit him.
The first defender to hit Collie knocked his whole body lower. This put Collie’s head directly in line with the other defender’s on-coming helmet.
The helmets smacked together at speed. Collie dropped the ball as his hands and arms stiffened and his eyes shut. For the next 10 minutes he lay out cold on the field.
That injury will lead to another NFL rule change, we believe.
