Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Avonte Maddox had to be stretchered out of Lambeau Field Thursday night after he took a brutal hit from teammate Andrew Sendejo late in the fourth quarter.
Maddox was covering Green Bay Packers receiver Robert Tonyan who caught a pass from quarterback Aaron Rogers. Sendejo tried to tackle him but got Maddox instead, Deadspin reported.
Maddox laid on the ground for a while but appeared alert when he was carried out.
“Avonte Maddox has movement in all extremities. For precautionary reasons he has been sent to the hospital for further evaluation,” the Eagles posted on Twitter just after midnight.
Green Bay Packers running back Jamaal Williams also had to be stretchered out after an illegal hit to the head in the first quarter.
The Eagles won 34-27.
