A worrying incident in the first quarter of the Buffalo Bills - Detroit Lions this afternoon as Bills cornerback Ron Brooks suffered a frightening head/neck injury.

The Week Five contest was delayed for several minutes as medical staff attended to the 2012 pick out of LSU and players from both teams were seen praying on the sidelines.

The incident itself, which can be seen via this link, occurred with Brooks and the Bills special teams chasing down a Lions punt return.

Unfortunately as Brooks chased down the ball carrier Jeremy Ross he was inadvertently tripped by a Lions opponent coming off a block, flipping over in the air before landing hard on his head.

Laying motionless on the field for several minutes, medical staff from both organizations came to his aid.

As Brooks was being carted off the field he did manage to raise his left arm to the crowd to give onlookers hope that the injury is not as bad as it seemed.

Brooks condition as present remains unknown however as he continues to be assessed in the locker room.

It goes without saying that everyone is hoping for a safe recovery for the fourth round pick.

The game itself, after several minutes delay, is now underway oncemore and is approaching the end of the first quarter.
