Taylor Heinicke Separated Shoulder On 3rd Quarter TD Dive, Stayed In & Finished Game

Taylor Heinicke meant nothing to just about everyone prior to Saturday night, but that name is now a household name amoung football fans.

After playing solidly all game, Heinicke got his highlight moment when he evaded seemingly the entire Bucs defensive line and scrambled to diving distance of the end zone. After a full extension leap, he was able to contact the pylon for 6.

Turns out Heinicke separated the AC Joint of his shoulder on that play, yet stayed in the rest of the game – more than a quarter’s worth of football.
