Aldon Smith kicked Robert Griffin III in the nuts during the third quarter of Monday’s San Francisco 49ers-Washington Redskins game, and he was lucky he got away with it.
Washington had a 2nd-and-7 early in the third quarter from the San Francisco 46 and went with a pass play. Griffin threw to the far sideline for Josh Morgan, but the pass was ruled incomplete. At the end of the play, after RG3 had already released the ball, Smith, who was an arm’s length away from Griffin, raised his leg and connected with the quarterback’s groin.
He must have a wide foot because he got both of them:
Even though Griffin clearly was in pain after being kicked in the groin, no penalty was called on Smith. Washington actually challenged the incompletion, but the ruling was upheld. Talk about a double whammy.
