Atlanta Falcons defensive end Charles Harris was launched out in the second from last quarter of Thursday night’s 25-17 win over the Carolina Panthers after a horrible hit that quickly sidelined quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Bridgewater was scrambling on the third-and-7 play when he was stumbled and went down for a 2-yard misfortune:
Harris came in after Bridgewater was down and conveyed a hit to the cap. The quarterback went to the side line tent to be checked for a potential blackout. He came out a couple of moments later and started tossing on the side line at that point returned in the final quarter after clearing blackout convention. Bridgewater wouldn’t call Harris’ hit a shameful move, yet running back Mike Davis didn’t stop for a second to.
“I thought it was a shameful attack”:
“It was late, hit him on the neck. You would rather not see that.” Previous XFL player P.J. Walker took over at quarterback for three plays, and the Panthers agreed to a 39-yard field objective to pull to inside 19-17. Bridgewater appeared to be annoyed that “somebody stuck their leg out and stumbled me,” easing back his energy. From that point onward, he just attempted to get down to secure himself since he stated, “I realized they were amassing.”
He stayed on the field for a few minutes after the hit as mentors accumulated around him:
Birds of prey mentor Raheem Morris said he knows in that sort of circumstance that authorities will secure the quarterback and didn’t question Harris’ discharge. “I realize he ran upon him. I realize he hit him,” Morris said of Harris’ hit. “I don’t know whether he connected with his head, yet the authorities saw it that way thus did New York. Thus you must arrange with it and get him off the field and finish the game.”
Bridgewater didn’t glance agreeable in the pocket throughout the night:
And even less so in the wake of getting back from the injury with 9:45 left in the game. Maybe this is because, as mentor Matt Rhule stated, he was “under pressure” the entire night from Atlanta’s blitzing protection. “You just can’t generally win when you can’t control the line of scrimmage,” Rhule said.
