A frightening scene unfolded late in Thursday’s game Eagles-Packers game that resulted in Philadelphia cornerback Avonte Maddox leaving the field on a stretcher.
With 1:06 remaining in the fourth quarter, Eagles safety Andrew Sendejo collided with Maddox as the two converged to tackle Packers tight end Robert Tonyan, who had just caught a pass inside the 10-yard line.
Sendejo drove his shoulder through Maddox, who went limp on the field and remained motionless for several minutes. Medical staff tended to him on the field before a stretcher was eventually brought out.
