Seals-Jones ran directly into one of the cameramen. He stayed down and was put on a backboard and carted off FedExField. Washington later ruled him out with a neck injury as it appeared he may have suffered an injury around his throat when he ran into the cameraman.

Eagles trainers were also helping the cameraman, who was shaken up on the play as well.
