Benjamin Watson has landed in the Strait of Concussion as a result of a nasty blow from Eric Reed, so you can forgive him for being a little worried at the moment with the Carolina Panthers' back.
During New England Patriots Week. 3 preseason win over the Carolina Panthers, Watson got a pass from Tom Brady, made the move and gained a few yards before being taken down. Turning to Watson, Reed dropped his legs and rammed his shoulder into Watson's head. Reed held on to helping Watson stand up, but the impact was not only suspicious but also curious, given that the two had come across a little beef on Twitter just days earlier.
Reed denied the hit was linked to beef on Twitter, but many were skeptical about buying it – including former back-patriot James Harrison.
And if you look at some of Watson's activities on Twitter after this game, you can say that he is less than pleased with Reed.
Watson was asked on Saturday afternoon if he was doing better, which elicited this response:
This comes after this Tweets Friday night.
Watson, 38, retired to rejoin the Patriots, the team that made him in 2004. has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season, so in an unfortunate event he has a concussion, he will have some time built in to recover.
