The Minnesota Vikings player was sandwiched between two players during a play in the second quarter of the game against the Atlanta Falcons. K.J. Osborn -- a wide receiver for the Vikings -- remained down on the field for several minutes.

The play was shared to X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, but fair warning, it is hard to watch.

Eventually, the cart came out on the field, and luckily he was able to walk to the seat.

Justin Jefferson, another wide receiver for the Vikings, who is out on injury, came over and hugged Osborn as he was carted off the field.

This comes just a few weeks after NFL quarterback Deshaun Watson suffered a severe head injury after a play during the Cleveland Browns vs the Indianapolis Colts.

The 28-year-old remained down on the field for several minutes after he got shoved to the ground hard by a defender, resulting in his head slamming into the turf — hard.

Tua Tagovailoa Sparks Concussion Protocol Discussion

Tua Tagovailoa

After suffering two head injuries within five days, Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa sparked a new discussion about NFL safety.

On September 25, Tagovailoa took a hard hit against the Buffalo Bills. When he got up, he was seen stumbling and not walking straight. The Dolphins quarterback was evaluated for a concussion during halftime, but returned to the game after professionals determined the stumble was caused by a previously reported back injury, and not a concussion.

Four days later, in the Thursday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Tagovailoa took another hard yet, this time resulting in his head hitting the turf and him being carted off the field on a stretcher as he could not move his arms or hands. He was briefly hospitalized.

NFL Reviews Concussion Protocol


The NFL Players Association then reviewed the league’s concussion protocol following the Dolphins quarterback’s quick return to the game on Sunday against the Bills. The NFLPA deemed the UNC made “several mistakes” during the concussion protocol process, multiple sources told ESPN. One of those mistakes included not examining Tagovailoa’s back during the initial concussion examination.

On October 1, the NFL and NFLPA agreed on an amended concussion protocol. Now, any player who displays ataxia, which is defined as “abnormality of balance/stability, motor coordination or dysfunctional speech caused by a neurological issue,” must be removed from a game and is not allowed to return.
