Luke Kuechly leaves Eagles vs. Panthers game with injury

Luke Kuechly leaves Eagles vs. Panthers game with injury

After the Eagles ran a second-and-4 play from Carolina's 6-yard line, Kuechly had to be helped off the field after taking a hit to the head from Philadelphia offensive lineman Brandon Brooks.

Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly is without a doubt one of the best at his position of this generation, as well as one of the best overall defensive players that we've seen. However, he left to the sideline immediately, and from there, he was escorted to the locker room.

This season, Kuechly has 29 tackles and one interception for a Panthers defense that came into Thursday's game third in the National Football League in total defense. Prior to 2016, he had been named first-team All-Pro three consecutive seasons, and he's also made four consecutive Pro Bowls even while only playing in 10 games last season.

Purslow: Klopp needs five years at Liverpool, not two
Liverpool will be with injured forward Sadio Mane and Neville believes that will be a big "psychological blow" to the hosts. Two goals from Juan Mata piled misery onto Liverpool , and United ran out 2-1 victors.

Not long after the second half had gotten underway, the announcement came that, yes, Kuechly had indeed suffered another concussion and was in the protocol. As it turns out, both parties involved were rooting for the Panthers, but shit got real when the victim told the attacker and his girlfriend to sit down and stop obstructing his view.

If Kuechly misses any substantial time, that would be a devastating loss for the Panthers.
