Notre Dame Player’s Helmet Explodes After Violent Hit In Team’s Game Vs Syracuse

Notre Dame punt returner Matt Salerno is going to need a new helmet.

During Saturday afternoon’s Syracuse-Notre Dame game, Salerno bobbled a punt and got immediately crushed with a huge hit to the head by Orangemen Markenzy Pierre that led to the paint of the Notre Dame player’s helmet to shatter.

Pierre was ejected for targeting on the hit.

As for Salerno it seems like he’s ok as he instantly got up after the hit and was able to walk on his accord to the sidelines.
