Josh Gordon had an up and down game at the Pro Bowl last night, literally.
The Cleveland Browns wide reciever caught six passes in the game for 66 yards. He also hauled in a 10 yard pass from San Diego Chargers QB Phillip Rivers for and tippy-toed in the end zone for a touchdown.
But it was another play in the game that really caught the eye.
After another reception, Gordon tries an end around run but unfortunately is met head on by his Browns teammate, but opponent on the day, TJ Ward.
For some reason the defender Ward, goes for the low hit on Gordon, and connects with the 22-year olds knees, sending him flying head over and heels and back down to the ground with a bump.
Quite what Ward was thinking i have no idea, and neither did Gordon who said after the game "I don’t think he knew what he was doing, but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt on that one,” Gordon told the Associated Press. “I’ll get him back in Cleveland.”
But with Ward a free agent this off-season, it's looking more likely that the justice might not be as teammates, and on the field of play.
Luckily the wideout was not injured but it sends out a message:
The Pro Bowl is back.
