During the first quarter of Sunday’s game at Wembley Stadium in London, Leonard Fournette utilized a stiff arm that was so powerful it injured the defender. Johnathan Joseph attempted to take on Fournette as he came around the right side. Using his left hand, he stiff-armed Joseph into the turf — hard — and the cornerback had to be attended to by medical staff afterward.
Here’s video of the powerful stiff arm by Fournette that sent Joseph off the field.
After coming off the field, Joseph was examined further in the team’s sideline medical tent.
Joseph had been dealing with a shoulder injury prior to the game, and many speculated that he aggravated the injury on the play. Looking at the video, that seems like a safe bet.
