You mentioned spinal swelling.  I'm pretty sure that if he still had spinal swelling, he wouldn't be going home.

Makes sense. But didn't know how quickly something like that can subside. Hours, days weeks...

I don't think it was something he did with any intended malice or dirty i think he probably didn't know exactly how bad he could be hurt and giving the ass kicking the Titans were taken could have had something to do with it too .

 

Obviously he he didnt intend it. But you should not be touching another injured player period. Could have life altering consequences with neck type injuries. Even if it wasnt dirty it was still very dangerous and incredibly stupid.

Wow.  No way I would have thought having your head pushed back violently like a pez dispenser would allow you to walk out of a hospital hours later.  Strength and conditioning of the neck I guess.

I don't think he had any clue he was injured.  It was hurry up, and he was laying on the guy's legs.  Obviously not intentionally looking back, but that does happen a lot when teams try to delay the ball getting snapped to run more time off.

Yeah I agree.  I doubt he knew he was injured.  Just a heat of the moment reaction.

Malice or not, it was stupid.  Dane was lying there curled away from the player, not making any attempt to hold him down.  He could have gotten his foot out (and probably more quickly) without throwing Dane aside like that.

 

He knew it right away, too.  Did you see Poyer shove him back, point at Dane and say something?   The guy just took the shove and stood there with a dumb look on his face like "oops".

 

I wouldn't be surprised if that little maneuver helped get the Bills that extra bit of "crunk" for the 3rd quarter, bad enough to have your brother get hauled off in an ambulance, worse if your opponent rag-dolled him while he was helpless on the ground.

I don't think he was malicious or dirty "oh the guy's injured and can't get up, lemme throw him around."  But guys who are trying to delay the opponent getting up position themselves differently and act differently.  Rook has to read the vibe.

Pez dispenser - that's a pretty good description - man that was scary!  

 

That he could be out of the hospital now after that is amazing - to be young and in top physical shape probably helped because I feel like that would have killed me...

Released this morning and walked out of the hospital; no problem.

The really dangerous injuries generally result from having your head violently pushed forward. 

For some reason the human body is designed to be much more resilient in instances where your head is pushed backward🤷‍♂️
