Rutgers Player Paralyzed
October 18, 2010 by staff
Sunday’s game involved two vicious hits – a Todd Heap in Baltimore and one in Philly DeSean Jackson – where the defender has led with his helmet and has seriously damaged the receiver. Both have left their games with injuries, and Jackson did not return.
Jackson was hit by Robinson Dunt Atlanta area that, like many defensive backs, bowed his head to kick in and the process itself and almost eliminated. Several other players, including Detroit and Cleveland Zack Follett Josh Cribbs were also put out games this weekend.
All these visits are terrible stressed, of course, by Rutgers defensive tackle Eric Legrand, who was paralyzed below the neck in his match Saturday. It was a terrifying reminder of what can happen on a football field where players throw themselves on the ground, without regard for anything until landing a sharp blow.
Apparently, Robinson and the New England Brandon Meriweather (which hit Heap) have not yet learned this lesson. It will teach them the NFL? Fines and penalties do not seem to suffice. Until the players are beginning to be suspended, they are unlikely to change their behavior.
