San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis took a hard hit from Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor during tonight’s game that forced his head to whip back. He ended up suffering a concussion and is out for the remainder of the game.

It wasn’t a helmet to helmet hit, but the officials immediately threw their flags because of how violent the hit was and the fact that Chancellor launched himself into Davis.
I honestly can’t remember if the NFL is against players launching themselves or if they’re against just helmet to helmet hits, or both.
