NFL teams are afraid to use cut blocks in practice. So why are they still allowed to use them in games?
The highlight was revealed on NFL social media accounts within minutes of Sunday night.
Kywan Thibodaux, a promising New York Giants defensive player, bent awkwardly on his right knee.
His leg was jammed by the tight end Thaddeus Moss of the Cincinnati Bengals.
Thibodaux crumpled on the ground after the play, which gave rise to reasonable suspicion about the terrible outcome.
Anyone who has been involved in football knows how it can work.
A season can be ended prematurely by driving a train onto the field. As is so often the case, these are difficult situations.
Thibodeaux responded according to the clip, framing it through a familiar terminology.
