Ken ChinSocial Media StaffSeptember 28, 2013

A scary scene occurred in the Ole Miss vs. Alabama game as Rebels lineman C.J. Johnson got hit in the face from a referee's penalty flag. The flag got inside Johnson's face mask and hit him in the eye, leaving the defender writhing in pain on the ground. 

If you look in the background, you can see the flag that hit Johnson. 

Johnson was in tremendous pain. 

Luckily, Johnson was not seriously injured and was able to come back into the game.
