Ref Gets Laid Out & Injured, Still Throws Penalty Flag


The NFL is back, and one ref has already shown his grittiness.

In the first quarter of the Commanders-Cardinals game, one ref was still able to make a play despite getting injured.

While standing on the sideline, one ref got absolutely laid out and appeared to injure his arm.

Despite getting hurt, the ref was able to throw a flag on a late hit while still on the ground, holding his arm in pain.

Update: Here’s a better look at the play.
