The Atlanta Falcons' receivers may want to keep their head on a swivel this Sunday. Cleveland Browns' safety T.J. Ward was fined $15,000 for his cheap shot to the head of a defenseless Jordan Shipley during last Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Ward said he was not trying to hurt Shipley but Terrell Owens disagreed. From ESPN:
"A ridiculous play," Bengals receiver Terrell Owens said after the game. "The guy's defenseless. I just hate to see a guy get hit like that in the head. For him to take a cheap shot like that, that's uncalled for.
"At one point, I thought [Shipley] was out cold. His eyes were rolling in the back of his head. You never want to see a teammate in that situation."
We've seen the hit and can only hope the Falcons' receivers will take extra care when in the vicinity of Ward.
