Football is a dangerous game, with players sprinting into each other at high speeds trying to make big plays.

As Newton's third law of physics states, every action has an equal and opposite reaction. In the NFL, that reaction comes in the form of injuries.

PJ Williams of the New Orleans Saints faced that opposite reaction today as he suffered a very bad looking injury in the early stages of his team's game against the New York Giants earlier today.

While attempting to tackle Giants' tight end Larry Donnell, Williams took a brutal knee to the back of his head from a fellow teammate.

According to early reports, Williams was knocked unconscious immediately by the hit from his teammate, which alarmed players and caused trainers to rush onto the field to tend to the stricken corner.

The second-year player didn’t appear to be moving at all, with medical personnel having to lift his legs onto the stretcher themselves. That is never a good sign, which combined with the not moving, led some people to believe that Williams had suffered a bad neck injury and even potential paralysis.

However, it is now being said that Williams has started moving his extremities and is talking to the trainers. He was being evaluated for a concussion and immediately transported to hospital, where he is being evaluated for a spinal injury.
