Late in the third quarter of the SEC Championship Game between the Missouri Tigers and Auburn Tigers, Missouri running back Henry Josey was scampering down the sidelines for a big gain. Unfortunately, at the end of the play, Auburn’s Ryan White delivered a huge cheap shot out of bounds as he slid into the cart.
Josey went flying into the cart that was sitting on the side of the field as he made a heavy collision with the cart. Josey was slow to get up and everyone feared the worse.
Luckily, Josey was able to walk off of the field under his own power, but he did need medical attention on the sidelines. It appeared that the medical staff was taping Josey’s lower back for what could have been a cut from the violent collision.
We are just happy that Josey was okay. Hopefully he can return to the game.
As for White, that type of blatant cheap shot is something that players need to be ejected for. There is no need for the excessive play and it was clearly out of frustration after a missed facemask call. Missouri was awarded 15-yards for a personal foul after the play and they punched the ball in to the endzone on the following play.
Here is a GIF of the cheap shot:
