Eddie Lacy knocked out with concussion after Brandon Meriweather hit
Lacy rushed for 10 yards on the team’s opening drive, but he was hit in the head by Meriweather, who is notorious for being a headhunter. Lacy hurdled a man to get some extra yardage, and Meriweather launched himself at Lacy head-first, making helmet-to-helmet contact.
Meriweather was blasted two years ago for his constant illegal hits. He even admitted that he was taught to leave his feet and go head-first on tackles. He’s obviously been unable to break that habit, and it cost him later in the game.
Meriweather left in the second quarter after laying another helmet-to-helmet hit. He nailed James Starks but suffered the worst of it and left with a concussion.
