Cardinals Lose Ward After Spectacular Collision

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Ward was pulled off the field in a cart after suffering a massive collision in Thursday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

On a kickoff during the third quarter, Ward came full throttle and ducked slightly in an attempt to bring down Hill, who had caught the ball. His head slammed into her legs, and her neck jerked back.


The crowd gasped at the force of the blow, as players from both teams flocked to see how Ward was doing.

Kinesiologists in Arizona reviewed and immobilized him for several minutes, before placing him on a stretcher. All the Cardinals players were on the field, staring at the procedure in amazement.

As he was pulled into the cart, Ward managed to swing his arms and put a thumb up, as fans applauded.

The Cardinals said the player could move all limbs and was being tested for a possible concussion.

Hill was also injured on the play and got on a cart with some help. The Packers announced that he suffered a knee injury.
