Falcons’ Charles Harris ejected for hit on Teddy Bridgewater

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

In the third quarter of the NFL game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football, Falcons defensive end Charles Harris was ejected in the third quarter. He made a questionable hit on Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Late in the quarter, Bridgewater was tripped by Dante Fowler Jr. This caused Bridgewater to be low to the ground.

Harris then came in and hit Bridgewater to the head. The hit likely gave Bridgewater a concussion.

Bridgewater was injured on a third-and-7 from Atlanta’s 37-yard line.

The Panthers signal-caller was down for several minutes. He then made his way over to the blue medical tent.

“Teddy is tough,” wide receiver Curtis Samuel said. “He showed that.”

P.J. Walker — who signed with the Panthers in the off-season after playing for the XFL’s Houston Roughnecks — replaced Bridgewater.

Harris was ejected for his actions. He received an unsportsmanlike penalty.

“I was just stumbling, and I knew at some point, guys would be swarming. So I just tried to get down, protect myself,” Bridgewater said. “I don’t really know who hit me. I just know someone got ejected.”
