Indianapolis Colts backup quarterback Chandler Harnish hits Fox sideline reporter Pam Oliver in the head with a pass during pregame warm-ups.

UPDATE -- Sunday, September 1: Oliver told the New York Daily News she suffered a concussion and had to spend five days in a dark room after the incident. 

After waking up that Monday her head hurt so much she had to hold it. “The sensitivity to light started and some nausea too,” she said, “my whole body was sore.” Oliver went to the doctor. The CT Scan came up clean, but she was diagnosed with a concussion. Oliver spent the next five days in a dark room inside her home.
