Johnny Johnson III was not ready for the intensity of Julian Blackmon early in Friday’s Pac-12 Championship Game between Utah and Oregon.

On the first passing play of the game for the Ducks, Justin Herbert hung Johnson out to dry on a swing pass that had zero chance. As soon as Johnson hauled in the pass, he was immediately lit up by Blackmon.

Not surprisingly, Johnson stayed down for a bit after this massive hit. He was attended to for a minute on the field by medical personnel but thankfully was able to walk off the field under his own power.
