Georgia Football Coach Accidentally Injures His Own Player
If you didn't get the chance to watch the Georgia/Auburn game Saturday, it was a good one. A tied ball game going into the 4th quarter, but it was the sideline activity that caught the camera's eye immediately following a tense moment on the field.
Linebacker coach, Mike Ekeler, got really fired up after the Bulldogs made a big stop on the field. And just as lots of coaches do, he began slapping players, except this time, he slapped a little too hard.
As he slapped cornerback Rico McGraw on the helmet, he was oblivious that he'd caught him just right on the facemask and McGraw hit the ground, requiring immediate help from the medical staff.
McGraw returned to the game a short while later and was completely fine, but this was one of those "Ruh Roh Raggy" moments.
Take a look for yourself.
