Sunday’s game between the Denver Broncos and the Washington Commanders featured a scary head injury suffered by Commanders tight end Logan Thomas after taking a dirty helmet-to-helmet hit from Broncos safety Kareem Jackson.

The play came at a crucial point of the game for the Commanders, trailing 21-3 with just 1:47 remaining in the second quarter.

The Commanders attempted to convert a fourth-and-four attempt on the Broncos’ four-yard line. Starting quarterback Sam Howell did just that, finding Logan Thomas for a four-yard touchdown to cut into the Broncos lead.

Unfortunately, the touchdown catch did come at a cost for Thomas, taking a nasty hit from Kareem Jackson directly on his helmet.

Thomas would remain down after making the catch for quite some time, and Jackson was flagged for the dangerous and borderline dirty hit. Jackson would ultimately be ejected from the game for targeting shortly after the play was reviewed.

Fans took exception to the hit right away on social media, and were happy that Jackson was rightfully ejected from the game.

This is becoming a troubling trend from Jackson early on in this season. Jackson was fined after another helmet-to-helmet hit on Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Jakobi Meyers, which ended up giving him a concussion.

Unfortunately, Logan Thomas suffered the same fate as Meyers did. Thomas was ruled out for the remainder of the game after the hit with a concussion.

It seems pretty safe to say that Kareem Jackson will be receiving another fine from the NFL after this latest hit. And a suspension may not even be out of the question considering this is the second time in as many weeks he has initiated a helmet-to-helmet hit.
