The Post-Crescent-USA TODAY Sports
Former LSU wide receiver and current Green Bay Packers rookie Malachi Dupre suffered a vicious hit from Eagles safety Tre Sullivan on Thursday night and had to be carted off the field.

After the hit, Dupre was motionless on his back for several minutes as the medical staff attended to him and players from both teams took a knee on the field around him.

Dupre was taken to a hospital for evaluation but gave the crowd a "thumbs up" gesture while leaving the field and reportedly now has movement in all his extremities.

Can't make football less violent without hamstringing it in some way...all you can do is educate and make sure players know full well what they are risking every step onto the field.

Dude wasn't out for blood, he's trying to make the cut. Nature of the beast. Hope Chi recovers with no lingering effects.

This is exactly what all current football tackling techniques are teaching kids to avoid. Pause it a few times as you see him enter the screen all the way to contact. You will see his face go from forward to pointing straight at the ground. He also made no attempt to wrap up which confirms his intent to spear. Defender saw a chance to target someone and make a big hit and did Exactly that...illegally. These types of hits have to get punished until they are out of the game. He could have made as impactful of a tackle using his shoulde with his face up and nobody would be concussed.

What a fricking idiot. Intentionally leads with the helmet.

Also these guys are going to get your will especially when your a rookie or in preseason. They are trying to make a roster so they are going to hit you and see what your made of.

Well this will either make him quit, be more timid or he will mold his body into to brick wall so he can be more of a physical WR. I know this is a head injury and no matter how tough you are it can happen but let's be honest he does need to improve that part of his game. He's a fighter and I think he does the latter. Go get em Chi.

Glad Malachi is alright. The hit was not malicious, imo. By rule, it was leading with the crown of the helmet, wether you agree with it or not. It is what it is. It's a high speed game with a lot of risks. I'm just glad he's okay and I bet he'll be ready to get back on the field soon. After all, he's a Tiger!

Irrespective of whether you agree with the rule about targeting and whether it's ruining the sport, it is a rule and it sure as hell looked as if Sullivan lowered his head to lead with the crown and strike Dupre's chin. That's targeting. Deal with it.

You people whining about the hit: have you played football beyond HS? Sometimes those hits aren't avoidable. And as long as these men are willing to take millions of $$ to give and receive the hits, why do you care? Are you protesting black lung disease in WV coal mines where those men willingly take hundreds to perform the job? The pussification and mind controlling of the sheep continues

concussion. No doubt. Really bad timing for Malachi trying to make the team. Silver lining, if he gets cut I hope the saints can scoop him up on waivers.

Isn't that the hit everyone is crying about doing away with? Looks like football to me and I'm glad he is okay.

Those are the kind of unnecessary hits that cause future brain trauma. He could have made the hit/tackle just as well a better way.

Hits like that are avoidable. Grow up!

Sure they are avoidable and cause issues and if that guy tries to make a more safe tackle and misses then he is on every highlight reel and on the coaches shite list for letting someone score a long touchdown because he was "afraid" to make a hit. It is a no win situation unless it is a defenseless situation. I do not feel like he was defenseless for this hit.
