The Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers were less than one full quarter into the first game of Week 4 when a scary scene occurred. Packers running back Jamaal Williams was nearly brought down by the Eagles defense when Derek Barnett came in late and hit him.
There was immediate concern over the running back’s health, as it appeared to be a helmet-to-helmet hit and Williams dropped to the ground almost immediately. NFL Update showed the video of the play.
As scary as the scene was, Yahoo Sports revealed that Williams gave a thumbs up after being placed on the stretcher and taken off the field.
Unfortunately, there’s still major concern over the Packers running back and his health, as the next news to come to light was troubling.
