Another NFL player gets Knocked out on the field during the game between Jacksonville Jaguars and New Orleans Saints in Jacksonville on Sunday. Jaguars tight end Geoff Swaim was knocked out following a helmet-to-helmet collision in the fourth quarter.
Swaim had just caught the ball when Saints linebacker Demario Davis barged into him, hitting him on the helmet. Swaim was on the ground for a few moments as players from both teams — including Davis — prayed for the 28-year-old, who later underwent tests for a concussion.
The game ended with a score of 13-6 in favour of the Saints, but their linebacker was called for unnecessary roughness on the play, and could face a suspension from the league.
Geoff Swaim just took a nasty hit.

Swaim was able to walk off the field once he regained consciousness and is being evaluated for a concussion. It is being reported that the league will evaluate the hit to determine whether Davis should be fined or suspended.
Looked like Davis led with shoulder, but tried to duck underneath. Swaim took a huge shot. Being tended to now. pic.twitter.com/ORlTukeBTX

#Saints LB DeMario Davis on the hit that knocked out #Jaguars TE Geoff Swaim: “…It’s just an unfortunate bang-bang play that just happened when we collided and I guess he came up on the bad end of it. My prayers and thoughts are with him.”
