    So what looks like a devasating helmet to helmet that may have severely injured Ellis Hobbs neck. He laid on the field for 10+ minutes before they carted him off.

    Hope he recovers!

    Per Andy Reid press conference after the game, X-rays negative. MRI to be given today.
    Hobbs walking, wearing a neck brace.
    This is the second neck injury for Hobbs in less than a year.

    That was nasty. I mean he's DAMN lucky to be walking.

    I only caught the replay, was the defender ejected? No doubt he's paying up for it today.

    That was pretty vicious. I think if he had damaged something it might've been devastating due to all the players hitting and falling on him after he was already knocked out. Scary play, but totally legal.

    Completely legal hit... He won't be fined.. as Collingsworth said, he did not hit a defenseless player..he was going down for the hit, the ball carrier was leaning down some.. just happened. If he is fined, then I call BS on the entire helmet to helmet thing..

    Why would the defender get ejected or fined for that?

    That is not the kind of hit that the NFL is legislating against
