Sideline reporter Pam Oliver hit in face with pass before Giants-Colts game

That's gonna leave a mark.

Fox Sports' sideline reporter learned the hard way that even in pre-season, you have to keep your eye on the ball.

Oliver was preparing for a sideline report before Sunday's new York Giants-Indianapolis Colts game when a pass from Colts backup quarterback Chandler Harnish sailed wide and caught her flush in the side of the face.

A camera caught the whole incident, following the pass all the way from Harnish's hand to Oliver's head.

Harnish apologized later and gave Oliver a big hug.
