With the Detroit Lions trailing the Kansas City Chiefs 20-16 late in the third quarter, rookie TE T.J. Hockenson tried to gain some extra yards by hurdling a defender.
Unfortunately, Hockenson came down hard on his shoulder and then head and remained down on the field as the Lions trainers rushed out onto the field to check him out.
More to come…
UPDATE: Hockenson is moving his legs and as sat up on the field.

Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson is being carted off the field after landing very hard on what appeared to be his head and right shoulder after making a catch in the third quarter. Down for a couple of minutes, he walked onto the cart on his own power. https://t.co/JRiAq4InCt
