Rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson was carted to the locker room after taking a scary fall on his right shoulder in the third quarter of the Detroit Lions' game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Hockenson was injured with 2:10 to play in the quarter when he caught a 9-yard pass from Matthew Stafford and tried to hurdle Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu.
Linebacker Damien Wilson caught Hockenson's left leg while Hockenson was in the air and spun the tight end to the ground.
Hockenson's body went limp after he hit the ground, but he sat up on his own and eventually walked to a waiting medical cart, where he was taken up the Ford Field tunnel, evaluated for a concussion and ruled out for the rest of the game.
DET QB Matthew Stafford - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 at Green Bay Packers
Two weeks ago versus the Chiefs, Matthew Stafford passed for nearly 300 yards and three TDs. Through the first four games, he’s tossed for nine scores and is averaging 280 yards per outing. After the week off Stafford and the Lions will be at Green Bay on Monday night. Dak Prescott just threw for over 450 yards versus the Packers defense, but much of that came after the Cowboys were well behind. In what should be a more competitive contest, Stafford is more of a QB2 play against what has been a decent pass defense.
