Montee Ball gets helmet ripped off by Reggie Walker (GIF)


Football is a game that is trying to protect it’s players from head injuries but we are still seeing defenders go for the head when trying to make a tackle. One of the easiest ways to see if a guys is tackling too is to look and see if you see a helmet rolling around the field somewhere. That’s something we saw Thursday night when Montee Ball nearly had his head ripped off by Chargers linebacker Reggie Walker.

The play was somehow not called for a some kind of penalty despite the fact that a flag was initially thrown on the play. The flag was picked up though and the play stood as a loss.

Maybe it’s something about the high altitude that causes referees to blow calls one way or another in Denver, but apparently you can just rip a guys helmet off if you want a play to be called dead on the spot and not have a penalty called because of it.
