Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper took a horrifying shot the head Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
Cooper extended to snag the ball, but a Broncos defensive back laid down a punishing hit.
The superstar receiver crumbled to the ground and appeared to be knocked out cold. It’s one of the scariest hits you’ll ever see in football.
Team trainers quickly rushed to his aid.

It doesn’t get much scarier than that. Cooper not only wasn’t moving when he hit the ground, but he didn’t even appear to be aware of what was happening around him. Football is a violent sport, and this hit is just another reminder of that sometimes sobering fact.
Luckily, Cooper was eventually able to walk off of the field.

We’ll hope for the best, and nobody should ever take a shot like the one Cooper got drilled on.
