Broncos rookie safety Rahim Moore can expect a sizable fine this week after delivering a nasty helmet-to-helmet hit on Bills receiver Donald Jones.
Moore delivered the hit as Jones was reaching high for a pass on a sideline route. Moore appeared to try to lead with the shoulder, but his helmet hit Jones’ helmet first, and Jones’ head slammed to the ground. Jones lay knocked out for a while with his arms frozen in place before becoming alert. He was able to get up and walk to the locker room under his own power.
Bills receiver Stevie Johnson got in Moore’s face and there was some pushing and shoving between the teams before it broke up. In a somewhat confusing scene, Moore then left the field and sat by himself at the end of the Broncos bench.
The announcers speculated that Moore was ejected at first, but they were wrong. Coaches came over to talk to him before leaving him alone to cool off.
Jones started the game at wide receiver in Lee Evans’ old spot.
