NFL planning to look into Kareem Jackson hit on Logan Thomas


The NFL is planning on looking into the violent hit that Denver Broncos safety Kareem Jackson laid on Washington Commanders tight end Logan Thomas. 

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Sunday night that the NFL was planning on reviewing the second-quarter hit to determine if there should be any further punishment.

Jackson came in for the high hit as Thomas was coming across the middle in the end zone. 

The play led to Thomas lying on the ground for several minutes before leaving the field with the help of team trainers.

He was ruled out after he was being evaluated for a concussion.

Jackson was penalized for unnecessary roughness and ejected from the game.

Jackson has not made many friends the last few weeks on the field and he’s sure to find himself under more scrutiny after this week’s hit. 

It came a week after he was fined for a hit on Jakobi Meyers of the Las Vegas Raiders that concussed the Vegas wide receiver.

The hit ultimately cost him $14,819, which the league had handed down on Saturday. 

Jackson had lowered his head and made contact with Meyers after the wideout made the catch.

“I just want to say I hope he’s alright. Obviously we don’t play this game to hurt guys. It’s a tough sport we play. … Unfortunately stuff like that happens. Definitely sending my thoughts and prayers to him,” Jackson said last week after the incident, according to Parker Gabriel of the Denver Post

“A lot of times, bang-bang plays, it’s just an unfortunate situation. Not really sure if I got him with my shoulder or head-to-head. … Hopefully he can come back healthy.”

The Broncos fell to the Commanders 35-33 in the end despite a last-ditch effort by Denver QB Russell Wilson in the last second of the game.

He was able to pull his team within two on a wild 50-yard pass that ended up in the hands of Brandon Johnson. 

The Broncos weren’t able to convert on the two-point conversion.
