This is a concussion if I’ve ever seen one…
During the 4th Quarter of the Rams vs Vikings matchup in Minnesota, safety Lamarcus Joyner came in with a lethal looking elbow, nailing Vikings QB in the head, sending it immediately to the turf.
Here’s a video of the play:
Joyner will likely be receiving a nice envelop from the league for the hit and maybe a suspension. We know how much the NFL treasures their QB’s. Fun fact with this scenario, the Rams defensive coordinator is the infamous Greg Williams, the center of the Saint’s “Bounty-Gate” situation where players were apparently payed based on their efforts to injure opposing quarterbacks.
The worst angle is the last one shown, a view from behind Joyner, where you can see just how fast Bridgewater’s head slams to the turf after being contacted by Joyner’s arm.
Interestingly enough, down in New Orleans, Titans LB Brian Orakpo was thrown out of the game for arguing a weak roughing the passer call, when he didn’t even commit the act. Meanwhile Joyner wasn’t even flagged on the play on what should have been a clear penalty called by the referee crew.
