(CBS) Bears safety Adrian Amos goes by the nickname of “Smash,” because of his love for the Incredible Hulk growing up. Smash takes a new meaning after Amos’ hit on Sunday night.
On a third down in the first quarter, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott connected to receiver Cole Beasley, who was approaching the first-down marker. In came Amos, who lowered the shoulder for a bruising, clean hit. Beasley was thrown back three yards by the tackle.
Beasley would leave the game momentarily with a chest injury, returning shortly after. The play was initially ruled a first down, but Bears coach John Fox’s challenge reversed the call.
