The Pro Bowl typically isn’t known as a hard-hitting game. It’s an exhibition contest, after all, and players aren’t interested in tempting fate with injuries. On Sunday, however, Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle found out that just running into Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph is unadvised.
Now, it looks like Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Kwon Alexander deals the big blow here. But if you look a bit closer, Doyle is already on his way to the turf when Alexander laid into him.
Certainly, this hit looked a lot worse than it actually was. Neither Joseph or Alexander launched into Doyle. He just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
