Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor could miss the remainder of the 2014 season after he suffered a gruesome arm injury during Sunday night’s win over the Carolina Panthers. Taylor was tackling Kelvin Benjamin in the third quarter when his own teammate, Lawrence Timmons, snapped the veteran cornerback’s forearm with the crown of his helmet.
Timmons was sprinting over to put a big hit on Benjamin but missed his target, hitting Taylor instead. Players from both sides could immediately tell the injury was bad. You can watch the play below, but we don’t recommend it if you’re squeamish.
That was right up there with some of the nastier injuries we have seen over the years. There is a legitimate chance that Taylor, who turned 34 in May, has played his last NFL snap.
