Big collision sends DeSean to locker room

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson and Falcons CB Dunta Robinson left the game after an absolutely scary collision between the two early in the second quarter.

Jackson was trying to corral a pass from Eagles QB Kevin Kolb when Robinson smashed him with one of the harder football hits you’ll ever see. Both immediately went to the ground and remained on the turf for several minutes.

Both eventually walked off the field with assistance from trainers to relieved applause from the Philadelphia crowd.

Jackson - who was diagnosed with a head injury and will not return to the game - had been phenomenal in the first quarter, totaling 78 yards and both of Philadelphia’s touchdowns (one rushing and one receiving).

Robinson was assessed a 15-yard personal foul penalty on the play, though replays showed the hit was not helmet to helmet.  

UPDATE (2:10 p.m.): Robinson also has a head injury, and his return is questionable.  

UPDATE (5:02 p.m.): Eagles coach Andy Reid said Jackson has sustained a concussion.

No fine is justified.  DeSean Jackson was in the process of catching the ball and getting a 1st down when Dunta Robinson seperated him from the ball with his shoulder.  Questionable call, this changed the tide of the game.   The NFL owes Mike Smith and the Falcons an apology.

The penalty was for hitting a defenseless receiver, not for leading with the helmet. He hit him with his right shoulder pad just like the announcers said. The penalty was because of the position Desean was in.

For leading with his helmet..Robinson is lucky to be able to walk still,, very dangerous hit, unnecessary,,use the shoulder pad

Robinson can expect a fine later this week.  Dirty play, no place for it in the NFL.  You DO NOT lead with the helmet.

Ah, scratch that. Saw a better replay, don't think that type of hit is legal anymore.

I hope both guys are OK, but I don't get it. The hit wasn't helmet-to-helmet, but Robinson got a penalty? For... hitting too hard?
