Watch: Minkah Fitzpatrick nails Dede Westbrook with huge hit
Dede Westbrook had a nice final stat line for the Jacksonville Jaguars in their preseason game against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday. But he did take some punishment in the process.
The third-year wide receiver was absolutely nailed by Dolphins safety Minkah Fitzpatrick while trying to make a catch across the middle of the field:

Westbrook bounced back up after that hit, which was completely legal.
Westbrook, a 2017 fourth-round pick, finished with four catches for 29 yards and a touchdown in the game. He looks to build upon last season’s strong showing where he had 63 catches for 707 yards and five touchdowns.
