Fox at 9 is supposed to give an update. I heard he had bleeding on the brain, but is stable and will be o.k. If there is anything different reported I will post.

His head really bounced on the ground. It looked pretty scary.

Chain gang people are going to have to start wearing gear.

He's going to be excellent when that check is cut.

I agree. Look at icehockey where all the refs wear helmets. Such an easy way to protect yourself from harm. I know the hat is used to throw when somebody leaves the field of play during a play but give them a blue flag or something for that instead.

Fined? For what? Getting pushed out of bounds? Its not like he hit the man on purpose. He puts his hands up but thats a natural reaction when you se something at the last second like that.

If you saw the play and the multiple replays, Roby had at least 5 yards to cut back into the field of play.

That being said. What does the NFL expect when they allow 200+lb freight trains to be pushed out of bounds at full speed? I am surprised no one has been hurt before with receivers being pushed out of bounds in mid air.
