Thomas Davis Laid Out Jimmy Graham with Nasty Helmet to the Chest (Video)
Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis can count on a considerably smaller pay check next week. The NFL’s probably going to give him a pretty hefty fine.
Why? Because last night Thomas Davis laid out Jimmy Graham with a pretty vicious helmet to the chest.
The play came at the end of New Orleans’ first drive of the game. Drew Brees got intercepted by Panthers defensive tackle Dwan Edwards, and Davis, ostensibly looking to block for Edwards, just crashed helmet-first into Graham’s chest and the bottom part of his face mask.
The hit totally levelled Graham, who stayed on the ground holding his head for a few seconds afterward.
Take a look:
There was no flag on the play, unfortunately. But hopefully the NFL will take action. That was just a cheap, dirty play. No other way around it.
Of course, if the NFL doesn’t take action, at least karma did. The Saints wound up winning 28-10.
