eddie lacy concussion hit

Green Bay Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy was forced out of the team’s Sunday showdown against Washington after he sustained a concussion. Lacy took a huge hit from Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather following a 10-yard run and was promptly taken to the locker room for further attention.

The former Alabama star was selected in the second round by Green Bay. He earned the team’s starting role but only had the one run against Washington. In his stead, James Starks took over the running back duties.

    That looks like an illegal blow with the head?? Was there a penalty flag on the play?? Was it reviewed? Didn’t watch the game but very interesting????
