If you remember, Denver safety Kareem Jackson was penalized in that contest after smashing Las Vegas wide receiver Jakobi Meyers with a helmet hit and putting him out of the game with a concussion. Meyers also missed the Raiders’ Week 2 loss against the Buffalo Bills.

Jackson was fined around $15,000 for the dirty hit, saying after the game that he didn’t intend on hurting Meyers.

During the first half, Commanders quarterback Sam Howell threw a touchdown to Thomas, which then triggered Jackson to launch himself into Thomas to blast him with an outright ruthless helmet-to-helmet.
After the violent hit, Thomas remained lying on the field before eventually leaving the game with a concussion. In response, officials ejected Jackson from the contest.

Jackson was blasted on social media for the incident.
I get that Kareem Jackson was disqualified today but he has now given concussion to both Meyers and Logan Thomas, he should get a suspension because he’s clearly head hunting, Sean Payton should be fined as well

Kareem Jackson is a PUNK!!!
He deserved to be thrown out of the game for this! There is NO place in the game for this shit! pic.twitter.com/83jedVRXBm

Kareem Jackson should not allowed to play in the NFL. Dirty hits to the head weeks two weeks in a row isn’t a coincidence.
Really hope Logan Thomas and Jakobi Meyers are okay and recover as soon as possible. 🙏

Two games, two concussions — in the first two weeks of the season. (RELATED: ‘I’m Talking To America Here’: NFL Referee Refuses To Be Interrupted While Making Call During Seahawks-Lions Game)
To say the NFL needs to suspend this guy is an understatement. Throw the book at this dummy.
