During Sunday’s Wild Card matchup, Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney smashed into Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, forcing Wentz to exit the game during the first quarter with a head injury.
While Philly calls it a dirty move, Clowney claims that causing a concussion wasn’t his intention.
Officials didn’t penalize Clowney. After the game, referee Shawn Smith explained their reasoning. “[Wentz] was a runner, and he did not give himself up. We saw incidental helmet contact, and in our judgment, we didn’t rule that to be a foul,” said Smith.
