The NFL is a league where big hits happen and players regularly have to play through the pain barrier.

Some of that pain can come in weirder ways than you might expect, however, much like what happened to New York Giants returner Dwayne Harris last night.

The Giants took on the Minnesota Vikings in what would go down as a losing effort, with Harris losing something of his own - a dreadlock.

The Giants return man was back to field a punt with barely half of the first quarter played and it didn't exactly go well.

Not only did Harris muff his attempted catch on the punt, failing to call a fair catch on it and putting himself in a world of trouble, Harris also had one of his dreads ripped out by one of the Vikings' gunners.

Minnesota recovered Harris' mistake and it ended in the first score of the game, with Matt Asiata powering in from inside the five-yard line.

You can check out the dread being pulled out here on Streamable. The Big Lead also have another angle of the dead dread. Watch as Cordarelle Patterson savagely pulls it out and drops it on the field.

A note to all players with dreadlocks, get them cut. This could happen to you, and it will absolutely suck.
