Ellis Hobbs: Eagles Corner Done for Season?
Ellis Hobbs, cornerback for the Philadelphia Eagles, could be done for the year after taking a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit from the Giants' Dave Tollefson on Sunday night.
According to NFL.com, Hobbs suffered a ruptured disk in his neck on the opening kickoff of the second half. Giants coverage man Dave Tollefson lowered his head and connected squarely with Hobbs' helmet, sending the smaller Hobbs sprawling to the turf.
The corner was unconscious for several minutes while trainers and team physicians attended to him, and, upon coming to, attempted to get up and walk.
Eagles head coach Andy Reid said that X-rays of the injury were negative, but an MRI revealed the ruptured disk in Hobbs' neck.
"He was upset because he wanted to get up and go," Reid said after the game. "Sometimes that happens in those situations. I told him to stay down there and trust the guys that were working with him. I said, ‘Let’s just make sure things are OK, and let’s not do anything stupid here.'"
