There was a frightening scene during tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams during the fourth quarter.
With the Seahawks well in control, Seattle punter Jon Ryan was looking to put things away with a fake punt.
Ryan found the opening in the center of the field and was well on his way to putting the game on ice, when he coughed up the ball. As Ryan bobbled the ball, Rams players closed the distance when cornerback Troy Hill lowered his shoulder and delivered a devastating shot. Ryan slammed his helmet off the turf which resulted in a brutal knockout.
Seahawks players tried to move Ryan as he laid motionless, before the training staff came onto the field.
Ryan remained on the turf motionless for a while, before ultimately making his way to the sideline under his power.
