The Redskins’ chances against the Eagles on Sunday ended with quarterback Jason Campbell taking a hard shot on a fourth-down play, being flung to the ground after throwing a pass.
After the game, Campbell talked about what occurred.
“I tried to hurry
up and give it to [Santana Moss] and the guy actually threw me on top of my head,” Campbell said on Comcast Sportsnet’s Postgame Live (via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post). “And when he slammed me down on my head everything blacked out, my left
arm was numb and I had the breath knocked out of me.”
Campbell remained on the ground for several minutes after the play. No penalty was called.
But at least Campbell still has his sense of humor. Asked whether a flag would have been thrown if Tom Brady had been the quarterback, Campbell said, “Yeah, I think it was a 15-yarder maybe.”
