LaMichael James was absolutely crushed by Ricardo Lockette on a punt return attempt to start the second quarter of the NFC Championship Game in Seattle on Sunday.
James muffed the punt return and was nailed by Lockette to the point that his helmet went flying off. Luckily the Niners jumped on the ball, so James’ error didn’t cost his team. They ended up scoring a touchdown on the drive to go up 10-0, so all worked out well … except for James’ health.
The poor guy was examined by doctors after the big hit. We hope he’s OK.
Here’s what it looked like after he got clotheslined:
