Andy Dalton suffers concussion after vicious head shot from Jon Bostic

Jon Bostic Andy Dalton

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton left Sunday’s game against Washington with a concussion after he was on the receiving end of a ruthless hit.

Dalton was trying to scramble for a first down deep in Dallas territory when he took a brutal head shot from Washington linebacker Jon Bostic. Dalton had clearly gone into a slide, but that didn’t stop Bostic from launching his shoulder and helmet at Dalton’s head.

Dalton laid motionless on the turf for a couple of seconds after the hit. He was immediately removed from the game, and Bostic was flagged for unnecessary roughness and ejected. Here’s another angle of the play:

Bostic will almost certainly be fined for the play and should be suspended. That’s the exact type of head-hunting hit the NFL has been trying to get rid of for years.

With Dalton and Dak Prescott both injured, rookie seventh-round pick Ben DiNucci took over for the Cowboys. Dallas was trailing 22-3 at the time, and Dalton was seen earlier in the game ripping into his offensive line on the sideline.
