Carolina Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater left Thursday night’s third quarter for several offensive plays after a play that featured dirty moves by multiple Atlanta Falcons defenders.
First, Falcons defensive end Dante Fowler tripped Bridgewater, and then Falcons defensive end Charles Harris followed with a dirty late hit to the head, all on the same play.

Harris was ejected. Bridgewater went to the medical tent to be evaluated for a concussion, and was relieved by PJ Walker at quarterback for seven plays, before Bridgewater returned with another 10 minutes remaining.
Along with the ejection, Harris will likely see a pricey fine, and don’t be surprised if Fowler does as well.
