That was an absolutely insane hit, and there’s no other way to put it. Was it legal? Without a doubt, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t huge.
You could tell as soon as Fitzpatrick hit the ground that he was in serious trouble.

Hopefully, Fitzpatrick isn’t too banged up and he’s able to return. You never want to see anyone get hurt, especially a guy like Fitzpatrick.
He’s a 100% pure class act.
Right hip injury for Fitzpatrick

Let’s all hope he finds a way to bounce back.
