When you are at football practice, the one person that shouldn’t be taking big shots is the quarterback, no matter if he’s the starter or third string. Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore didn’t get that message when he decided to layout Joe Burrow at practice today.
Burrow was scrambling around and looked to run down the sideline. That is when Lattimore came up and laid a hard shot on the sophomore backup.
Of course, Burrow wasn’t wearing a black jersey, the universal football sign of someone not taking full contact, and he made himself a runner, but you probably still don’t want your second string guy taking big shots like that in spring practice.
I am sure coaches didn’t appreciate what Marshon Lattimore did, despite getting a good reaction from his defensive teammates on the sideline. Maybe he should save that for the field later this season, because that is where it will really matter.
