During yesterday's match up between the St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers, Rams safety T.J. McDonald grabbed 49ers tight end Vernon Davis between his legs and tackled him.
After the play (video below), Davis rolled around on the field for a few seconds while grabbing his crotch.
"I'm still thinking about it. I can feel it," Davis told 49ers.com. "It was a crossing route. I made the play, and as soon as I got my hands on the ball, [McDonald] was grabbing me right there in that space, that area, and I kept telling him, 'Let go, get off me, get off me,' and he wouldn't let me go."
Despite the unusual tackle, the 49ers won the game 23-13.
Davis tweeted today about the incident, but later removed the tweet:
"It should be a league rule saying that a defender can not tackle a player by his penis. #NFL the most painful thing ever! #NFL."
In more weird NFL news, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin stepped onto the field and almost stepped into Baltimore Ravens returner Jacoby Jones, depriving him of a touchdown (video below).
According to CBS Pittsburgh, that move may cost the Steelers a draft pick and Tomlin a six-figure fine.
