Forget firefighters and soldiers. Punt returners are the bravest men in the world.
Cleveland Browns special teams hero Josh Cribbs got absolutely blown up by the Baltimore Ravens’ Dannell Ellerbe during the first quarter of last night’s game. Perhaps “blown up” is too soft a phrase. Finding the right words is difficult because it’s among the hardest and most devastating hits you’ll ever see.
Cribbs appeared to be unconscious before hitting the ground and laid motionless on the turf for several minutes before suddenly popping up and walking off under his own power.
